First let me say how sorry I am for your loss. Please know that death and the pain it causes were never Jehovah God's purpose for us. To give us comfort and hope He gave His dear son Jesus and many Bible promises. Such much as Acts 24:15, which promises that our loved ones who have passed away will live again! Imagine seeing your dear Michele again! What a wonderful time that will be! In time if you would like to know more about God's promises please visit jw.org. Again my condolences.
