We want to express our condolences to your family of your dear loved one. After reading the obituary it’s evident that she was a special person that will be missed dearly. Since many are faced with the unbearable pain such a loss brings, you may wonder “How long will these feelings last? Will I ever be happy again? How can I find relief? The Bible answers these questions for us. God promises that there will be a time when he will swallow up death forever at Isaiah 25:8.
