    My deepest condolences for your loss. May the words of Isaiah 25:8 bring you comfort. "He will swallow up death forever. And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces. The reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth, for God himself has spoken it." May you find comfort in knowing that God longs to restore life to all whom he remembers in the grand resurrection, Acts 24:15.

    My deepest sympathy goes out to you and your family. I hope you find comfort in the scripture at Acts 24:15. This is what our God Jehovah promises for us all. And we can look forward to what is written in Psalm 37:9-11 and 29.
