I am sincerely sorry for your loss. Sometimes the hardest thing to do is continue on after the loss of a loved one, but please be assured that Jehovah God is aware of what you're feeling. Psalm 34:18 states "God is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit". God can and will provide you with the comfort & strength to endure during these difficult times. God promises us that there will be a resurrection, that will take place after he does away with death once and for all time. (Rev 21:4 & John 5:28-29) Then we will never have to experience the pangs of death ever again. I pray these words and scriptures brings you comfort.
