So sorry to hear if your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

I am so sorry to hear of your great loss. Recently I lost my dear mother, and found great comfort in the Holy Bible, like at Isaiah 25 verse 8 - "The Sovereign Lord will swallow up death forever, and wipe away the tears from all faces." Also at Revelation 21 verse 4, we find God's promise to remove both pain and death. For more comfort, I turn to the website at: www.jw.org ( Search: Comfort)

May God wrap His loving arms around you all and bring you comfort and peace. May your memories be a blessing and sustain you in your grief.
