I am so very sorry for your loss! Please find comfort from a scripture I'm sure you have read several times before but is personal to you now. "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." (Revelation 21:4) Jw.org Reply to this comment
