  1. I am so sorry for your loss. My heart goes out to you in your time of sorrow. May you let God’s Word comfort you when it reads, ‘If an able-bodied man dies can he live again? You will call, and I myself shall answer you. For the work of your hands you will have a yearning.’� (Job 14:14, 15). God will have a yearning to resurrect faithful ones.
