I am so sorry for your loss. May the God of all comfort continue to be with you and your family during this difficult time. Revelation 21:3-5 helps us to look forward to a better future when death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. May you all find comfort in this promise from Jehovah God through His son Jesus Christ.
