I am so very sorry for your loss. Please find comfort in God's sure promise of a resurrection to a paradise earth, where sickness and death will be no more. "The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out." (John 5:28,29) I hope that reflecting on these thoughts and your wonderful memories will give you some relief during this difficult time.
