Honestly nothing can compare to the sting of death. Although I did not know them, I know the pain you’re going through is eminence. I’d like to at least give comfort to you that God didn’t mean for this to happen and plans to reverse the effects of death (Revelation 21:4). Your family is in my prayers.
