I wish there was something I could say that could heal your broken heart but I can't. But this promise made by our Heavenly Father in Revelation 21:3-5 will heal you in time. And the power Jesus displayed in John 11:1-44 will give you the strenght to go on.

I am sincerely sorry for your tremendous loss. God's promise of a future with no more pain, suffering, nor death, as well as, the promise of the resurrection brings us some comfort during difficult times. (Revelation 21:4 & Acts 24:15) Again, my condolences for your loss, and your pain.
