I am sincerely sorry for the lost of your loved one. I have recently lost a loved one and I understand the hurt it brings. What comforted me is a bible verse at 1 Corinthians 1:3,4, the God of all comforts cares for you. A verse at Isaiah 25:8, he promises to end death forever. The one that brings me the most comfort is John 5:28,29. A promise that you can see your loved ones again thru the resurrection hope.
