Condolences to your family on the loss of a loved one, death is not always something we are prepared for and it can be a complexity of emotion and stress when it happens. May there be comfort found in these words from the bible.
Revelation 21:4 (And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.) It’s refreshing to know that Jehovah will put an end to suffering once we understand that death is not the end and we have a hope for the resurrection to an everlasting life.
