    I am so sorry for the loss of your loved one. There is a very comforting scripture at Isaiah 25:8. It says that soon Jehovah will wipe away all of the tears and that death will be no more. So we can all look forward to a time when death will be done away with. I hope that this scripture can bring some true comfort during these difficult times.
