Please accept my sincere sympathy in the loss of your loved one.
At a sad, time as this the Bible gives us comfort at Revelation 21:3,4 where God promises to rid the earth of sickness, sorrow and death. What a wonderful time when we no longer have to face these enemies.
I hope this scripture gives you some consolation.
