So sorry for your loss. I know this is a difficult time for you and your family. It is comforting to know that our Creator promises at Revelation 21:4 he will wipe out every tear from our eyes and death will be no more neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. I hope your family finds comfort in this scripture. For more information on Bible based subjects please refer to this website
