To everyone who has faced the death of a loved one or fears losing someone you love:
Her father wisely explained, "Exactly. And our wise Father in heaven knows when we are going to need things, too. Don't run out ahead of him, Corrie. When the time comes that some of us will have to die, you will look into your heart and find the strength you need--just in time" (The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom).
There is hope:
On this mountain He will destroy the shroud that enfolds all peoples, the sheet that covers all nations; He will swallow up death forever. The Sovereign LORD will wipe away the tears from all faces; He will remove the disgrace of His people from all the earth. The LORD has spoken. Isaiah 25:7-8
