My deepest condolences to the family for your loss.Truly heartbreaking. Our Heavenly Father gives us a beautiful thought when He promises us that soon death will be "swallowed up forever." (1 Cor. 15:54) Along with this, God also guarantees that ones who have died will be able to live again. (John 5:28,29) I hope these encouraging scriptures can bring you some comfort during this difficult time.
