I'm offering my condolences during this time. A comforting scripture and a wonderful hope to remember is Revelation 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes, and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain for the former things are passed away.
