I’m so sorry for your loss. This is one of life’s greatest challenges that we have to face.
Jesus said ,did and promised something that gives us comfort and hope. In the Bible at John 11:11-14 Jesus liken death to sleep.
This comfort us in two ways: 1) we are assured by those words that our loved ones are not suffering or in pain. 2) If a person is just sleeping he will wake up! Notice what Jesus does next at John 11:43-44, this is amazing!
Jesus promised us something similar at John 5:28,29 what a beautiful hope we have!
