Please allow Jehovah God(Psalm 83:18)to help you by means of his consoling word the Bible, he promise in the near future to do away with death and tears(Revelation 21:3,4),and promise to resurrect the dead(John 5:28,29). You can find real hope and strength by meditating on God's promises, he cares for you and feels for you in your pain(1 Peter 5:7).
