Hello, when I see someone who went to sleep in death, I try to encourage the family from the bible. When we loose someone we love in death, we feel the sting of death.
In 2 Corinthians 15:26, we see that death is an enemy and will be done away with.
The scriptures gives us hope in John 5:28,29 that those we lost in death, we have a chance to see them again. Our God, Jehovah,(Psalms 83:18) gives us comfort as well.(2 Corinthians 1:3,4.)
Doctors spend millions and countless hours on finding cures, Jesus simply said “you are cured “. We need God’s kingdom.
He will never give you more than you can bear. Words do bring comfort but the bible heals our hearts. Again I'm sorry for your loss
