  2. Sorry for the loss of your loved one. At times like this it can be hard to lose people we care about, but just know that God sees death as the enemy 1 Corinthian 15:26 and he has resurrected people in the past and the Bible gives 8 instances to give us comfort here is one John 11:39-44. God is the creator of life Psalms 3 6:9 so he is capable of restoring life to our loved ones so take comfort that you will see your loved one again. The ultimate explanation from God is why we die the Bible answers this at Genesis 3:17-19 and Romans 5:12
