My condolences to your family during this most difficult time. May you find comfort from God's promise in the Holy Scriptures for a future resurrection. Jesus said, "Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out!" Until this promise is fulfilled may you draw close to God for he cares for you.--John 5:28, 29

I am sorry to learn of your family sorrow. The death of a loved one is painful. If I may, I'd like to share scripture found in your Bible that may comfort you in some way. John 6:40 reads...For this is the will of my Father, that everyone that beholds the Son and exercises faith in him should have everlasting life, and I will resurrect him in the last days. You see, according to this promise, we have hope.
