I am very sorry for your family's loss. When we lose a loved one, we need comfort. May your precious memories help you through this. Many have found comfort in these words found at Isaiah 25:8: "He will swallow up death forever, And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces. The reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth, For Jehovah himself has spoken it."
