I’m so sorry for your loss. There is nothing more painful than losing a loved one. I would like to share an encouraging scripture from the Bible. Revelation 21:4 says And he will wipe out every tears from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. Please read this scripture accompanied with your Bible. I hope you get the comfort and the peace that you deserve during this time of bereavement.
