My sincere condolences for your loss. I hope you are able to find comfort in the scriptures at Acts 24: 15 and John 5: 28,29 which gives is resurrection hope. At Revelation 21: 3-5 God brings out that in the future there will be no more pain and suffering. And we can look forward to what is written in Psalm 37: 9-11 and 29 about the meek will possess the earth. To find more information please visit
