I am very sorry about the loss of your loved one. Nothing is more heartbreaking or stressful than to lose someone you love in death. Mary Lyn is safe in Jehovah’s perfect memory and He promises to resurrect her to a beautiful paradise earth where there will be no suffering or pain. God will end suffering and death forever. Revelation 21:3,4, John 5:28,29, Psalm 37:29. I hope that these beautiful scriptures will bring you comfort.
