The years of our life are fleeting. Without intervention, we would all say goodbye to those we love, or they would say goodbye to us. Wonderfully, God has promised to intervene. “With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. 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) God will destroy death and remove the pain it has caused by restoring those who have died back to life. Yes, it will be like he wiped the tears from our eyes, when we are reunited with those we love. I am very sorry for your loss.
