My heartfelt condolences to the family during your time of bereavement. Many can relate to what it feels like to be touched by sting of death. What has helped us to cope were scriptures like John 5:28,29; Revelation 21:3,4; Isaiah 25:8; 1 Peter 5:7. Reading and thinking on these scriptures can help to bring you comfort and strength in the weeks, months and years to ahead. Knowing that your loving heavenly Father understands and cares about what you are going through at this time can be a real source of strength and comfort you need. Plus He plans to bring back to life those we have lost in death in the future so near now.
