Please find comfort in knowing that our Heavenly Father hears and is listening to your prayers for comfort and truly understands the depth of your grief and loss. “God is close to the brokenhearted; he saves those who are crushed in spirit.”—Psalm 34:18, 19. My deepest sympathy for this difficult time you are going through.

My condolences to you and your family during this time of bereavement.   Please take comfort in knowing that God promises that "those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out," (John 5:28, 29).  God also promises to "swallow up death forever, and the sovereign lord Jehovah will wipe away tears from all faces."  (Isaiah 25:8).  May these thoughts bring you peace during your time of sorrow.
