My thoughts are with your family.
I would like to give my deepest condolences to the family for the passing of your love one. I hope your family and friends been able to find comfort from the God of all comfort. I know losing a loved one is not easy; although, I was able to find much hope in God's word the Bible. Jehovah our heavenly father knows our pain, Psalms 34:18 tells us Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted and saved those who are crushed in spirit. He also promises death and sickness will be done away with completely. Isaiah 33:24 states, And no resident will say:" I am sick" The people dwelling in the land will be pardoned for their error; and we look to the fulfilment when death, the last enemy will be brought to nothing stated in
1 Corinthians 55:54-58. I hope these scriptures will bring you a measure of comfort during this time.
