My condolences to the family. I am so sorry for your loss but we all can gain comfort when we take to heart what the bible tells us at Rev.21:4 Where it tells us that in the near future the almighty God will do away with death and anything that cause pain. Again I am so sorry for your loss.

I am sorry you have suffered the loss of someone dear to you, please have faith in God. By meditating on God’s promises found in the Bible, you can find real hope and the strength to keep going throughout your grief. "For if we have faith that Jesus died and rose again, so too God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep in death through Jesus."—1 Thessalonians 4:14
