I am so sorry for your loss. The Bible describes death as an enemy, and how fitting, since death brings us so much pain. But there is someone who is stronger than death. “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 Jehovah himself has spoken it.” Isaiah 25:8 Jehovah will remove the cause of our suffering and dry our eyes. Death will be destroyed, and those who have died will be brought back to life, with the prospect of living forever in paradise on earth. Right now it may be hard to see past the pain, but there is hope for the future. May this hope comfort your grieving hearts.
