Please accept my deepest sympathies for your loss. The lost of a loved one is the most painful experience we have in life. It would be great if death didn't exist, if life never ended in a world that was beautiful and peaceful and everyone loved one another. This can be a reality for us, if we learn to love Jehovah and Jesus Christ.
