    I’m so sorry to hear about your loss, losing a loved one is always very difficult, but at John 11:11 it tells us that when Lazarus died that he just fell sleep, so we know that when our loved ones die they’re just asleep for a short time. May the God of all comfort be with you and your family at this difficult time. For more comfort visit jw.org
