    Know that death is not and end , but @a transition to a place free of pain and suffering,
    2 Timothy 4:7-8. ” I have fought a good fight, finished the course, I have kept the faith: Henchforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, Which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, But unto all them also that love His appearing.”

    Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal.

    My condolences to the family. When losing a loved one it can be unbearable. That is why God has provided scriptures in the Bible to help one’s cope with the loss of a loved one. In the Bible book of Isaiah 25:8 Jehovah God promises soon to “swallow up death forever.” He also promises to bring back those who have fallen asleep in death (Acts 24:15). In a little while longer this kind of pain will be a thing of the past (Revelations 21:4). May these scriptures bring you comfort in this difficult time (
