Please accept my deepest sympathy for the loss of your loved one, Frederic. May you find comfort in the words written at Acts 24:15, where God promises to bring back to life those we have lost in death by means of a resurrection. In the near future, He will also eliminate our enemy, death.(Revelation 21:4) This gives us the wonderful hope of being reunited with our loved ones, forever. Until then, I hope the memories of Frederic and these promises from God comfort you in the days to come.
