    I'm so sorry for your loss. Death can be so difficult to have to deal with. The bible helps us during times such as these. Revelation 21:4 says that God will wipe every tear from our eyes and death and pain will be no more. John 5:28,29 also says that there will be a resurrection of our dead love ones.
