My deep condolences to the Lillie family,
The pain of losing a loved one is oh, so real. May you find some comfort in the Most High God’s word (Psalms 83:18) . Yes, He promises a time when we can see our loved ones again(Acts 24:15) in perfect health (Isaiah 33:24) and He says where: Psalms 37:11. May you hold on to God’s promises.
May comfort & peace be with you.
My deepest sympathy to the family for your loss. May the “…Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort…” be with you during this sad time. (2 Corinthians 1:3-4) ~ (Psalm 83:18)
