Losing a parent leaves an empty place in your heart, but God in his mercy offers comfort with the promise of eternal life through Jesus Christ. This means you will one day have a joyous reunion in the kingdom of God. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. May God's mercy give you comfort knowing that your father's long suffering has ended, and he is at peace. He will forever remain in our hearts. Love y'all
