Death of a child is a loss that requires a great deal of comfort. It also require that we have hope, hope that can be found in the Bible at Revelations 21:3,4. Here God promises that soon he will do away with death forever. Until this time, may God continue to provide you comfort during this difficult time. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4 NWT)
