My heartfelt sympathy to the family. Certainly loosing a loved one is one of the hardest things we have to bear. A scripture that has helped ime cope with loss is John 5:28,29. Here Jesus says "the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". Reassuring us that he wants to reunite us with our loved ones again. I hope this brings your family some comfort during this difficult time.
