My name isCarlein. I am a Bible teacher. I am sorry for your loss. A scripture that has given me much comfort is Revelation 21.4 which promises that one day death shall be no more. I hope this truth brings you comfort also.

"May Jehovah, the God of all comfort be with you all as you mourn the passing of Mrs. Riley. His Word gives power when we feel as though we have none, may you find through It the strength to bear your loss. For your comfort In the days ahead I pray you meditate on His promise to end tears of loss, and to resurrect those now sleeping in death." 1 Thessalonians 4:14, Revelation 21:4, John 5:28,29,
