I’m sorry for your loss, it can be hard to lose someone close to you. I wanted to share a hope with you for the future from the Bible. It is at Revelation 21:4, which gives us reassurance that God will one day take away sickness, disease-caused pain and tears of sorrow. We will all one day live in peace.
