My deepest sympathy goes out to the family. May you be sustained by the Bible's promise that soon our loving heavenly Father will resurrect our loved ones to a perfect world where no one will suffer sickness, pain or loss anymore.

"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."- Revelation 21:3,4
