Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. The Bible can bring you much hope and comfort at a time like this. Within its pages are the promise found at Revelation 21:3:4. God is going to end all suffering and death. We also read about the wonderful promise of the resurrection found at John 5:28:29.
