Sorry for you lost. I'm find hope in Bible verses. 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 said "Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God".
