I'm so sorry for your loss. Please accept my deepest sympathy. May you find comfort from your memories, as well as from God’s word the Bible? Why do people we love die? Romans 5:12 says: "That is why, just as through one man (Adam) sin entered into the world and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men because they had all sinned." How loving of our God to promise what is found at Revelation 21:4 which says, “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” If you would like more information on Why we die, please visit jw.org under Publications (tracts) Can the dead really live again?
