My condolences to the family on the loss of your loved one. I didn't know Carol, but I do know how it feels to lose someone you love in death. The pain, grief, and feelings of helplessness can seem unbearable. But God's word the Bible proved to be a great source of comfort for me. Revelation 21:4 says "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away". Also Acts 24:15 assures us that "there is going to be a resurrection" and we have the wonderful hope of seeing them again when Jesus wakes them up. So may these words give you peace and may the Almighty God continue with you to comfort and strengthen you through this very difficult time.
