  • Nora I'm so sorry for your loss. The pain and grief of loosing someone we love can seem unbearable. Something that can be comforting is God's word. As 1 Corinthians 1:3&4 says; ...the God of all comfort, who comforts all in our trials...The Bible helps us to understand how God feels about death. Isaiah 25:8 says God will defeat our enemy death, and it will be gone forever. -More comforting truths can be found in a book called "What Does the Bible Really Teach". I hope you will look into this subject further. I know it will bring you comfort and peace as it did me. Sincerely Nora
