My sincere condolences for the loss of your Sister. We have a beautiful hope given in the bible that God will remember our dead loved ones and will bring them back to life on earth. Jo 5:28,29 Ps 37:11,29. Imagine the day when there are no more tears of sorrow and death and pain are gone forever. Rev 21:3,4. May you find comfort in these promises. https://tv.jw.org/#en/mediaitems/VODBibleTeachings/pub-jwbcov_201405_5_VIDEO
