I am so very sorry for your loss.  Please find comfort in God's sure promise of a resurrection as set forth in the Bible.  (Acts 24:15; John 5:28,29)  Those who are raised to life will have the prospect of never again being subject to misery, sickness, or death.  (Revelation 21:4)  I hope that reflecting on these thoughts will give you some relief during this difficult time.
