Joyce’s family: I'm so sorry for your loss. I went through a similar situation and I was very helped by the hope that I found in the Bible in John 5:28, which says, "Do not amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". I am sending you a link with more information on this hope.
So sorry to learn about your loss of your dear one. May you know that God purposes to do away with sickness and death, and restore the life of our deceased loved one back to the earth in the near future. Please read these verses in your Bible. (Isaiah 33:24; 25:8; John 5:28,29). During that time there will be an abundance of peace because Jesus will be ruling as King over our earth. (Psalms 37:10,11; Revelation 21:4,5). May these promises bring you comfort and peace.
