I’m so sorry to hear of your family’s loss.A scripture that offers so many comfort and a hope of time when things like death and pain,will be a thing of the past. It’s at Revelation 21:4, it reads.

“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”. This scripture promises that soon God will do away with all things that cause us pain and sorrow.If you have any other question, regarding the topic of death or any other bible based question,please feel free to visit jw.org,where you can find the answers. Again my condolences for your loss
