My condolences to the family. When losing a loved one it can be unbearable. That is why God has provided scriptures in the Bible to help one's cope with the loss of a loved one. In the Bible book of Isaiah 25:8 Jehovah God promises soon to "swallow up death forever." He also promises to bring back those who have fallen asleep in death (Acts 24:15). In a little while longer this kind of pain will be a thing of the past (Revelations 21:4). May these scriptures bring you comfort in this difficult time (jw.org)
I will always remember you with love.Your Sister.
