Losing a love one in death is not what God wanted for mankind. One day death will be done away with. The scripture that comforts me the most is Isaiah 26:19, "Your dead will live. My corpses will rise up. Awake and shout joyfully, You residents in the dust! For your dew is as the dew of the morning, And the earth will let those powerless in death come to life". I hope these words will comfort your family as well. My condolences to the family
