Death leaves heartache that only God can heal. Grief can be so hard. The void you feel because of the loss of your love one shatters your hearts in different places. But the memories of Loretta can keep you forever close to her until she hears Jesus voice and come back to life so you can be reunited with her forever. What a joy this is going to be. The promise of the resurrection is a sure hope from our Heavenly Father through his son Jesus Christ. BECAUSE GOD CANNOT LIE let this hope comfort you in time of deep sorrow. Titus 1:2 and John 5:28. My deepest condolences to the family.

May the God of comfort and tender mercies (1 1:3,4) comfort your hearts while we await His promise to end death..... and make all things new (Revelation 21:4,5) which will be accomplished by His Kingdom government that Jesus taught us to pray for in the Lords Prayer 🙏
