I am so sorry to hear of your precious loss. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers. Take comfort from the hope promised to us at Acts 24:15. It says, "And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous." May you have peace during this time.
