Sorry to read of this great loss to the family. The passage in Romans chapter 12 verse 15 encourages to rejoice with those who rejoice and weep with those who weep. So until your tears subside may you find the comfort of God. Also may you find a measure of comfort in the support of each other and from friends. The loving memories you share will also bring you peace as your love one will always be in your heart.
