    Please accept my sincere regrets for your loss. I know how difficult it can be to lose someone in death. Jesus himself wept when his friend Lazarus feel asleep in death and he knew he could resurrect him. 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.
