I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your dear love one. I have also experienced the loss of loved ones and what helped me and many others to cope is our heavenly father God (Psalms 83:18) who is the "Father of tender mercies and God of all comfort who comforts us in all our trials". 2 Corinthians 1:3&4 The bible also gives us a marvelous hope for the future and tells us that soon will bring an end to suffering and death. I sincerely hope these words will be comforting to you.
