So sorry for your loss. Think of the good memories. The Bible talks about a resurrection in the book of John 5:28,29 and also says one day, there will be no more sicknesses in the book of Isaiah 33:24. It will be so wonderful to live forever in a paradise earth in Psalms 37.
What must we do to live forever? Please read in your Bible book of John 17:3.
May the God of comfort Jehovah help your family through this, Psalms 83:18.
