I am so sorry for your loss and I know that it is never easy to lose a loved one. May you find comfort in God’s promise found in Revelation 21:4 where he says “he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” This verse has always given me some peace, but especially when I experienced loss. Hopefully it can do the same for your family.
