The death of a loved one may be the single most difficult circumstance we have to deal with in life. I have found comfort in the bible's hope for the future and though I did not know Rita, I try my best to share with the bereaved this wonderful hope in their time of loss.
One scripture that really is comforting is found in the bible book of Job, chapter 14 and verse 15. In speaking about relief from his own death, Job was inspired to write, "You will call, and I will answer you. You will long for the work of your hands." Job had confidence that God would not only "call" him from death, but that he would "long" to see his faithful servant again. The hope for Rita and us all is that he views us the same.
I hope this scripture provides some comfort, more helpful information is found on the bible-based website www.jw.org.
