May the God of comfort be with family and friends. Death is truly a sting one that only our creator can remedy. His promise to reunite loved ones again is found at John 5:28&29; which states that the time will come when all those in God's memory will come out. Yes something we all yearn for when death will be no more. Till them may your memories and support from family and friends help you endure.
