I am very sorry for your loss. Although it is hard to get over loss and grief, in the bible we find hope for our love ones. In Revelations 21:4 states: "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.”
