Please accept my heartfelt condolences on the loss of your loved one.  In the Bible, a man named Job raised the question: If an able-bodied man dies can he live again? Then he answered: I shall wait [in the grave] until my relief comes. [God] will call, and I myself shall answer. (Job 14:14, 15) What a joy it will be when that time arrives and the dead are reunited with their loved ones!  May God give you strengh now and in the future as you cope with the death of your loved one.
