    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.
