I'm so sorry for your loss. We weren't meat to deal with death. Soon there will be a time when death will be no more. The Bible states that God "will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” Revelation 21:4. Yes, death will be gone. But what will happen to the ones who have already died? "There is going to be a resurrection." Acts 24:15. So we have a real hope of being reunited with our loved ones, John 5:28-29. Have you ever wondered why we grow old and die in the first place? The Bible answers that at Genesis 3:17-19 and Romans 5:12. You can also find more answers to questions like these at www.jw.org. Best regards, friend.
