    I'm so sorry for your loss. I know how hard it can be to lose someone you love.  The bible has brought me comfort and it can bring you comfort to during these difficult times. My favorite scripture to look to is Revelation's 21: 3,4 which says," With that I heard A loud voice from the throne say: "Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. And he will wipe away 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." Also is a resource to help you find more comfort from the bible to help you through this increadably hard time.
