    I am sorry for your loss, please accept my sincere condolences. I hope the family will find some comfort and strength in Jesus promise of the earthly resurrection(Acts 24:15)and the renewed Paradise earth, where death will be no more and no family will mourn the death of a loved one.-Revelation 21:3,4;John 5:28,29;Luke 23:43. may GOD(Psalms 83:18)grant you peace and comfort now, during this grievous time.-Matthew 5:4.

    I am sorry to read of the passing of your family's loss. Death is truly an enemy as the Bible says. The Bible also says at Revelation 21:4,5 : And 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. And the One seated on the throne said: " Look! I'm making ala things new." Also he says: " Write, for these words are faithful and true." All the things that bring us pain and sorrow will soon be no more. May the words from God's word comfort your family and friends.
