Hello family Please accept my heartfelt condolences during this time of bereavement. There's a wonderful hope that's pinned in Romans 6:23- that being of everlasting life!! One day soon no one will ever feel this awful feeling again, So Grieve as hard as you need but never forget that the true God Jehovah knows what you are going through and has already made arrangements to fix the sting of sin and death.
