I would like to offer my condolences for the loss of your loved one. Have you ever wonder what happens to us when we die? in the Bible at Eccel. 9:5 it tells us that as far as the living they are conscious that they will die, but as far as the dead they are conscious of nothing at all. When one dies they fall into a deep sleep and our spirit goes back to the ground. We are in a restful state and don't have to worry about what goes on from day to day any longer. But we have the hope of the resurrection to see our loved oens again. Jehovah God knows everything about us and he will bring us back to perfection. He will call everyone out of the memorial tombs and death will be no more. Just remember to pray for his help to cope with the loss at this time in your life. I hope I've given you some comforting words to help you cope with this loss. From a concerned bible student.
