I am very sorry to hear about your loss. Losing a loved one can be hard to bear at times. May we always remember to call on God’s name. A scripture that you may find comforting is Psalms 34:18: Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit.

My sympathy for the loss of your Wife. I know how difficult it is to lose a mate
What has helped me is the hope in the Bible where God will remember our dead loved ones and will bring them back to life on earth. Jo 5:28,29. Ps 37:11,29
Imagine the day when there are no more tears of sorrow and death and pain will be gone forever. Rev 21:3,4
May you find comfort in these promises.

To the Family,
I would like to express how sorry to hear of your loss.
It seems so unfair that death should have the power to take away someone you love. And when it happens, the thought of never again being able to talk to, laugh with, or hold your loved one can be most difficult to bear. That pain is not necessarily erased by being told that your loved one is up in heaven.
I found what God promises in the Bible helpful. At Acts 24:15 it says “And have hope toward God, which they themselves also allow, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead.”
This promise has consoled me when my father died. Hopefully, it can provide some hope and comfort to your family.
