I'm sorry your loss. It's never easy to cope with one of the most damaging things to deal with in life. I just thought I might share something that helped me cope with the loss of a loved one. Revelation 21:3,4 talks about a time when the disease called death will be no more. It says that it will be a thing of the past. Furthermore, the bible tells us at John 5:28,29 that our loved ones will come back to life on earth. Hold on to these truths to uplift you and and your family in such difficult circumstances. The God of all comfort will carry you through.
