My sincere condolences to the family of Jamie. What a painful loss of someone whose lifespan was not fully lived; there should have been so much of life ahead. But may you receive comfort from the God’s Word during this time of loss. Jehovah God gave Jesus the authority to heal the sick and power to raise the dead.The Bible’s resurrection accounts give us a sure hope. Read John 11:39-44. And in the future, death itself, and the grief it brings will be no more (Revelation 21:3, 4). I pray you find comfort as we await the fulfillment of these wonderful promises from our Heavenly Father.
