    Sorry for the loss of your love one. May you find comfort in knowing that your dear one is safe in the memory of God, who will remember every detail about her and bring her back again. John 5:28, 29 gives this assurance. These are wonderful blessings to look forward to. Hope this thought brings comfort.
