With heartfelt sympathy to the family, May you find comfort in the word of God and in the knowledge that others sympathize with you in your loss. Since this may be one of the hardest things we will ever have to cope with, the bible offers hope. Pointing to a glorious time, Isaiah 25:6 says, God will acutually swallow up death forever and God will certainly wipe the tears from all faces. Please read Revel. 21:3,4. It has helped many bereaved persons and myself. I pray it does the same for you.
