So sorry to hear about your loss. It is never easy to deal with such an ordeal even though we knew what the outcome will be. But Jehovah has given us a hope that soon we will be able to see our loved ones again (John 5:28,29). We are looking forward to that day when our loved ones will be resurrected to life again and we are there to experience that joyous occasion. What a happy occasion to look forward to. However, John 17:3 mentioned that there is something we need to do to experience that joyous occasion. We need to get to know Jehovah and to do his will, by doing so we will experience that hope that Jehovah has in stored for us.
