    I am so sorry to hear of your great loss. Recently I lost my dear mother, and found
    great comfort in the Holy Bible, like at Isaiah 25 verse 8 – “The Sovereign Lord will
    swallow up death forever, and wipe away the tears from all faces.” Also at
    Revelation 21 verse 4, we find God’s promise to remove both pain and death.
    For more comfort, I turn to the website at: http://www.jw.org (Search: Comfort)
