    I'm so very sorry to hear of your loss. I know how difficult death can be. The bible does comfort us in times such as these. Psalm 34:18 says that Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted. Revelation 21:4 says that God will wipe every tear from our eyes and death and pain will be no more. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
