I am deeply sorry for your loss of such a precious loved one. Please find comfort in knowing that you are not alone. The God of tender mercies knows your pain and provides comfort. ( Isaiah 41:10 ). He promises to soon put an end to our enemy death, ( 1 Corinthians 15:26 ) and we will then be able to enjoy the company of our love ones again in a paradise here on earth! ( Revelation 21: 3 & 4 ). My sincere condolences to the family.
