Please accept my condolences for the loss of your loved one. Please know that death and the pain it causes were never Jehovah God's purpose for us. To give us comfort and hope he gave His son and many Bible promises. Such as Acts 24:15, which promises that our loved ones who have passed away will live again! Imagine seeing your dear Jimmie again! What a wonderful time that will be! In time if you would like to know more about God's promises and how they will be fulfilled please visit May God be with you.
