Our deepest condolences to the family. When our loved ones fall asleep in death, words alone cannot ease the pain of our loss. Our loving God Jehovah understands how we feel and he comforts us by means of his word the Bible. Isaiah 25:8 says He (GOD) will swallow up death forever, And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces. We can also find comfort from Jesus words at John 5:28-29 “The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out. May these scriptures bring comfort and calmness of heart to you during the difficult days ahead.
