    Times like these can be hard. But Gods words can offer comfort . In Revelation 21:4 it mentions , ” And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” God offers us a better future. I hope this will console your family in your time of need.
