My deepest sympathy to you and your family during this difficult time of bereavement.   The Bible offers us comfort by reminding us that "God is close to the brokenhearted," (2 Corinthians 1:3). It also promises that “he will wipe away all tears from our eyes and death will be no more,” (Revelation 21:4).  Please have faith and trust in God that your loved one will be resurrected (John 6:40).
