You have my deepest sympathies. Losing a loved one in death brings pain and tears. But, please know that one day this will all end. Revelation 21:4 states: And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. May Jehovah strengthen the family during this time.
