So sorry for your loss, may the God of loving kindness be with you at this time of grief. May loving words at Revelation 21:4 comfort you at this time. "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. The former things have passed away."
