I'm so sorry for your loss.  I too know the sting of death.  The memories of good times will carry you thru these sad days.  I hope that you can surround yourself with family and those who can build you up with the comfort you need. There is the best support found in God's word.   Please read Isaiah 25:8.  Death will soon be a thing of the past and there will be no more tears.  Take care of yourself and let the sciptures fill you with hope and promise.
