Life as we know it - is truly a gift from God! How we use that gift is a personal choice and decision. Absent of life is death - which will in time befall us all. When we lose our loved one to death - the pain is one which can't be compared to any other emotional pain or hurt. It pull at the innermost cord of our emotions and stir up a sense of emotional lost.
However, death, is not the end of it all. We are promised a time where all of the pain and suffering of today will soon be a thing of the past according to Revelation 21:3,4. That is a promise!
