So very sorry for your loss, God promises us in his word the Bible that death will be no more, neither will pain nor sorrow, nor outcry be anymore. The former things have come to pass. God promise throughout his word that pain, death and sorrow will all be in the past. Let's look forward to God's promise at Revelations 21 verses 3 and 4.
