I am so sorry for your loss. When someone we love dies it can be very difficult to cope with day to day issues. Our loving God, Jehovah, knows your pain and is ready to offer you comfort from the scriptures. As God's people, we look forward to the time when Rev:21:3, 4 is fulfilled. Until then, it is my hope you will draw comfort from Phillipians 4:6, 7. There it says if we pray to Jehovah God he will give us peace by means of Jesus. There is also the promise at Psalm 55:22 that says if we throw our burdens on Jehovah he will sustain us.
