I am so sorry to hear of your great loss.
Recently I lost my dear mother, and within
30 days I also lost my mother-in-law.
What helped us during this time period
was the comfort from the Holy Bible, like
at: Isaiah 25 verse 8 - "The Sovereign Lord
will swallow up death forever, and wipe
away the tears from all faces." Also at
Revelation 21 verse 4 we find God's
promise to remove both pain and death.
