    Please accept my sincere regrets for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. The bible does provide us with comfort and hope in 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, this is especially comforting since we know this scripture has to be referring to the earth because these things don't exist in heaven.
