    I am so sorry to hear of your great loss. Recently I lost my dear mother
    and found great comfort in the Holy Bible, like at Isaiah 25 verse 8 –
    “The Sovereign Lord will swallow up death forever, and wipe away the
    tears from all faces.” Also at Revelation 21 verse 4 – we find God’s
    promise to remove both pain and death. For more comfort, I turn to the
