My deepest sympathies to the family and friends. Death is something we are never prepared for. Our Heavenly Father put eternity within our hearts. (Ecclesiastes 3:11) He created us to live forever and has promised to "swallow up death forever." (Isaiah 25:8) As you await this time, continue to reflect on loving memories of your loved one.
