My condolences to you and your family. May  1Thessalonians 4:13 -15 give you and your family some comfort.  Which say " Brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about those who are sleeping in death, so that  you  may not sorrow as the rest do who have no hope. For if we have faith  that Jesus died and rose again and, so too God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep in death through Jesus ". So again my condolences to you and your family .

To the Family: So sorry about the loss of your dear loved one. The Bible tells of times where we won't have to deal with the death anymore at Rev 21:3,4. May you find comfort in the scriptures during this difficult time.
