Sorry for the loss of your dear loved one, When the enemy death strikes, your grief can be great, though you may or may not hope in the resurrection. Take comfort in knowing that the Bible says, at (Acts 24:15;“I have hope toward God, which hope men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection.” So, it is possible to see our loved ones again.
