The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.  He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul; he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's  sake.  Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.  Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies:  thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.  Surely  goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever, Amen.

I am truly sorry for your loss. May the true God watch over your family during this most difficult time. May you find comfort from the Bible's promises at John 5:28, 29 and Acts 24:15. There it tells of a time in the near future when we will be reunited with our dead loved ones.
