I am so sorry for your great loss. May you find comfort in Psalm 34:18...  "Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted. He saves  those who are crushed in spirit " . Our heavenly Father does not leave us without hope of seeing our love ones again. Acts 24:15 assures us, "There is going to be a resurrection.” May your warm memories also give you strength to endure these difficult times.  With deepest sympathy.

I would like to express my sincere condolences to the family. May you find some comfort in this thought found in Isaiah 61: 1,2 that says in part "He sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, To comfort all who mourn,"
