I'm very sorry to hear about your loss. I know personally how difficult it is to lose a loved one in death. My heart goes out to the family during this time. Please take comfort in knowing that God sees death as an enemy and will act to end it (1 Cor 15:26). God's Word also promises a time in the future where we can all have a hope of seeing our dead loved ones again (John 5:28,29). Take care.
