    I am so sorry for your loss death is a painful enemy we all have to face but real soon there is going to be a relief of all pain and suffering and that includes death.1 Corinthians 15:26 says “And the last enemy death is to be brought to nothing “.God’s Kingdom will bring such a beautiful relief and this Kingdom will also ressurect our loved ones who have died in the past John 5:28,29.All of these beautiful blessings are in the near future and we can tell by the conditions of this world now 2 Timothy 3:1-5 it’s clear that this is the world we are living in now but there is hope for a whole new world( Revelation 21:4 )May these scriptures from the Bible not only comfort you now but in the days ahead.
