  2. Please accept my heartfelt condolences. My heart goes out to your family. Death is something we will never get use to. In fact, God’s Word refers to death as an enemy. (1 Corinthians 15:26) Very soon our loving Heavenly Father, will remove death once and for all ( Rev 21:4) and give us the opportunity to see our loved ones again here on the earth. (Acts 24:15)    If  you would like to learn more from the Bible about why we die or why a loving God allows so much suffering & injustice, please feel free to go to jw.org to find some very satisfying answers.
