I am so sorry for your loss, please accept my sincere condolences at this time. Something that I have found to be a great source of comfort are the thoughts expressed in the Bible at John 5:28,29 where we see that there is going to be a resurrection of those who have fallen asleep in death. Losing someone is never easy but I hope that you find comfort from the scriptures and the promises that God holds out for us and our dead loved ones.
