I am so sorry for your loss. Loosing a loved one is certainly hard to bear. A scripture that has helped me cope with loss is Revelation 21:3,4. Here our loving heavenly Father promises that soon He will put an end to both suffering and death. Reassuring us that He wants to reunite us with our loved ones again.
