"Know that death is not an end, but a transition to a place free of pain and suffering." The word of God reminds us in 2nd Timothy 4:7-8: " I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing."
