My condolences to the family may Jehovah God give you peace and comfort through this difficult time.
(2 Corinthians 1:3,4) Jesus was resurrected and given life through his Father and those who are sleeping in death will have resurrection and life through the Father. (John 11:25,26) Again I am so sorry of your loss.
