I am so sorry for your loss. May it help you to know that God's Word at 1 Corinthians 15:26 reads: And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing. Yes, because of His love and knowing the pain that death bring to families, He will get rid of it forever, never to return. Please find some strength and comfort from this, in your days ahead.
