    I'm very sorry for your loss. Death is very hard to have to deal with. The bible does provide us with comfort and hope. Revelation 21:4 says that God will wipe every tear from our eyes and death and pain will be no more. This is comforting when we realize that this has to been referring to the earth, because death and pain don't exist in heaven.
