I am so sorry for your loss. May you find comfort in God's loving promise found at Revelation 21:3, 4 to "wipe out every tear from their eyes, for death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." Knowing of this precious hope can give you strength and courage to endure as you await the time when all things will be made new. Continue to reflect on your most precious memories as you await this assured promise from our Heavenly Father Jehovah. (Psalms 83:18)
In this difficult time may the God of all comfort and his promises of the time when there will be no more death and we can again enjoy life with those we’ve lost bring you comfort. (Isaiah 25:8; John 5:28, 29)
Sorry to hear this news. May she RIP
