My deepest condolences to your family. The Bible talks of death being hard even for Jesus to bear . He also gave way to tears because we were never meant to die. The Bible account in the book of John chapter 11 is very touching .I encourage you to read it as it is faith strengthening as well as comforting . What Jesus did for Lazarus and his family was a very beautiful thing. And it's something that will come true for us all one day very soon . Revelation 21:4 says death will eventually be done away with and we will no longer mourn nor suffer. Thank God for this wonderful hope for the future!
