My deepest sympathy to the family. Losing a loved one is always very hard. God knows and feels your pain. We are encouraged to "throw our burdens on him and he will sustain us."(Psalm 55:22) Although there are tears of grief today, God promises a joyful future without death, mourning, pain, and tears or sorrow. (Revelation 21:4) He also promises a resurrection to life for our loved ones whom we have lost.(John 5:28, 29) In time, may your hearts find comfort in what Jehovah God has promised, for it will all shortly come true. (Titus1:2)
