I am so sorry for your loss. May it help you to know that sickness and death was not in God's plan, but Adam sinned, so sin and death entered into the world, so we all sin and die, but God know the pain this brings us and he love us so soon as Isaiah says: No resident will say: "I am sick", yes sickness will be gone forever, never to return as well as death. Plesse find some comfort from these few facts in your difficult days ahead.

To the Matyas family, I am so sorry for your loss. God does promise at Isaiah 25:8 " He will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces." This gives is the hope that soon we will not have to lose our loved ones to death but we can hold onto them forever. I hope this gives you comfort in your time of loss.
