I am so very sorry for your loss. Please find comfort in God's sure promise of a resurrection as set forth in the Bible. (Acts 24:15; John 5:28,29) Those who are raised to life will have the prospect of never again being subject to misery, sickness, or death. (Revelation 21:4) I hope that reflecting on these thoughts will give you some relief during this difficult time.
Lara was an amazing friend and I was cherished to have her friendship for a lifetime. Lara will be dearly missed. My prayers are with the family during this heartbreaking time.
