My sincere condolences for your loss. You can find countless consoling scriptures in God’s Word the Bible. In Ps. 31:7 it states.... that God is aware of our deep distress. Furthermore, God promises that in the future: He will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more.... Rev. 21:4.
