My family and I want to express our condolences
for the loss your wife, daughter, mother.
My wife and I have lost family members
and a scripture I always liked is found at
Revelation 21:3-5. Here it is from the
amplified bible:
And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, all arrayed like a bride beautified and adorned for her husband;
Rev 21:3 Then I heard a mighty voice from the throne and I perceived its distinct words, saying, See! The abode of God is with men, and He will live (encamp, tent) among them; and they shall be His people, and God shall personally be with them and be their God.
Rev 21:4 God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and dea shall be no more, neither shall there be anguish (sorrow and mourning) nor grief nor pain any more, for the old conditions and the former order of things have passed away.
Rev 21:5 And He Who is seated on the throne said, See! I make all things new. Also He said, Record this, for these sayings are faithful (accurate, incorruptible, and trustworthy) and true (genuine).
I hope this also brings comfort to you.
