Dear friends, precious ones - with whom we've shared many happy experiences over the years, and grown into deep friendship
All these folks are believers in Christ and as believers, followers of the Lord Jesus, and joy! we do have the "blessed hope"(see verse) of His coming and of the resurrection.
Sometimes we as believers feel bad for feeling sad.
We should be glad they're in heaven with Jesus!
... okay to be feeling vulnerable and weepy cos you're mourning, you're hurting for your loss, sorrowing over their passing, but also for hurting over the whole situation for others who have loss too through this.....
How much with us, who have this same humanity, but not His omnipotent, omniscient, omnipotent nature???

"God Himself shall be with them.. He will wipe away all tears from their eyes".
This from Rev 21:4 talks of the new heaven and those who are there in heaven, where there is no more crying, sorrow or pain, those that are saved walk upon the streets of it (Rev 21:24) For we sorrow not as those who have no hope..
