I am very sorry for your loss. Most people who have died will be resurrected. Jesus promised that “those in the memorial tombs will . . . come out.” In harmony with God’s original purpose, those resurrected as humans will have the opportunity to live on a paradise earth. This promised future includes perfect health and everlasting life for obedient humans. The Bible says: “The righteous will possess the earth, and they will live forever on it.” You can also look at Revelation 21: 3-4

My deep deep condolences to the Will/Thomas family: May you reflect on the precious memories that you have made with your loved one. Losing a loved one can cause so so much sadness and pain of heart. So, I would like to share what helped us when our precious daughter died and later when my precious husband fell asleep in death due to cancer. I appreciated the calls and visits from people from all over. But I also, recall just sitting down and reading different Scriptures and meditating on them. It was so comforting to read that God cares for us personally... (1Peter 5:6, 7). Yes, He cares, He sees our pain. And, He Jehovah God will in His due time do away with All sicknesses & death (Isaiah 33:24 & Isaiah 25:8). He is indeed a God of comfort. Oh, wow He promises the hope of seeing our precious loved ones again (John 5:28, 29) and says where (Psalms 37:11). He always keeps His word. I hope that these few Scriptures were of some comfort to you as they were to me.

To the family of Mrs. Thomas, I am deeply sorry to hear of your loss. Losing such a cherished loved one is surely a pain that no one should ever have to feel. May the God of all comfort be with you at this heartbreaking time. (2nd Corinthians 1:3,4, and Revelation 21:4)
