    I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Recently I lost my dear mother, and found great comfort in the words of Jesus at John 11:11-14 where he likens death to being asleep, and at John 5:28,29 -"All those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out." For more comfort, I turn to the website: www.jw.org (Search: Comfort)
