I am very sorry for your loss. You may find comfort at Revelation 21:4, "And he (God) 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." We can look forward to the time when God will take away all reasons for distress and even gives us a hope of a resurrection. (John 5:28, 29)
