I am very sorry for the loss of your loved one. As we well know from the Scriptures, never was it God's purpose that death be a part of our human lives. (Gen.2:16,17) He has promised to undo all of the effects of Adamic sin and mankind, including those resurrected, will live to the full on a restored paradise earth, enjoying life the way God intended. (Daniel 12:2; Isaiah 25:8; Psalm 37:10,11,29)
