      I am so sorry to hear of your great loss. Recently I lost my dear mother, and within 30 days   

      I also lost my mother-in-law. What helped us during this time period was the comfort from   

      the Holy Bible, like at Isaiah 25 verse 8 - "The Sovereign Lord will swallow up death forever  

      and wipe away the tears from all faces."  Also at Revelation 21 verse 4 we find God's promise  

      to remove both pain and death. For more comfort, I turn to the website at: www.jw.org (Search: Comfort)
