I am so very sorry for your loss of Billy, even though I didnt get to know him personally. Losing a loved one in death can be very distressing for us to go through. The good news is the Bible promises a time when we will see our loved ones again. One account is found at Acts 24:15 which says,There is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous. What a wonderful time that will be to reunite with those weve lost.
