My deepest condolences go out to your family. It’s very little that can take away from the pain we experience when we lose a loved one, but one thing that helps me find comfort and hopefully helps you too, is the the promises found in the Bible. Such as, Isaiah 25:8 where God promises to soon, “swallow up death forever” and to “wipe away the tears from all faces”.
