My deepest sympathy on the loss of your beloved one. Losing someone you love is the most difficult thing a family will ever do. May Bible promises bring comfort. Revelation 21:3,4  “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” God has promised us a new world, no more sickness, pain or death. A world without mourning and crying, to be reunited with our loved ones by means of the resurrection hope Jesus spoke of at John 5:28,29 "the hour coming in which All those in the Memorial Tombs will hear his (Jesus) voice and come out.” My thoughts and prayers are with you.
