I'm sorry for the loss of your dear loved one, Milan, and may you be comforted by the God of all comfort, Jehovah, thru his word the holy bible in Psalms 34:18: Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit. God's word also says in Isaiah 25:8: He will swallow up death forever, And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces....For Jehovah himself has spoken it (Psalms 83:18; Titus 1:2) Revelation 21:3-5; / John 5:28,29; John 5:25,26. This is what God's kingdom under Jesus Christ rulership, will accomplish in the near future, for all those who love righteousness. The true God promises in his word, in Psalms 37:11,29:..The meek will possess the earth, And they will find exquisite delight in the abundance of peace live29: The righteous will possess the earth, And they will live forever on it.(New World Translation Of The Holy Scriptures)
