- I'm so sorry for your loss. I personally have known the loss of a mother and grandmother, and the pain can seem overwhelming. I found comfort in Acts 24:15, where it says: "And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous."
We will see our loved ones again! I hope this brings some comfort to you in this time of sadness.
