I want to express my sincerest condolences for your family's loss. An enemy like death is hard to deal with especially during these times. I would like to share a scriptural comfort that has helped me through the years, at 1 Corinthians 15:26 "the last enemy, death, will be brought to nothing". This confirms our feelings that death is not normal, and that there will come a time that death will not be something we have to deal with. I hope for the comfort of God for your family during this difficult time until we see death brought to nothing.
