My sincere sympathy goes out to the Bridges family. Be assured of God's promise that he will comfort you during your grief (2 Corinthians 1:3,4). Jesus foretold a hope that one day we will see our loved ones again happy and healthy, at John 5:28, 29 he said, "all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out." I pray this comforts you as it has our family during loss.
