I am sorry to hear that you are having to endure such a difficult loss of someone who was surely a cornerstone of her family. I hope that your faith in the Bible's promises of a future with no death can help sustain you. Revelation 21:3,4 is one of my favorite scriptures because of that promise. I hope that it bolsters your endurance during this time of grief.

The loss of a loved one is truly heartbreaking but the bible offers comfort - (Comfort when loved ones die...2 Corinthians 1:3,4), (Freedom from the morbid fear of death...Hebrews 2:15), (A real hope of being reunited with your dead loved ones...John 5:28,29).
