My deep condolences to the Meining family,
The pain of losing a loved one is oh, so real. May you find some comfort in the Most High God’s word (Psalms 83:18) . Yes, He promises a time when we can see our loved ones again in perfect health and He says where: Isaiah 33:24 , Acts 24:15 & Psalms 37:11. May you hold on to God’s promises.
May comfort & peace be with you
