Very sorry for your loss. Many people find comfort in the Bible during difficult times like this. John 5:28,29 says "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out." Please take a look at this short video that gives us hope for the future. https://www.jw.org/en/publications/videos/#en/mediaitems/VODMinistryTools/pub-imv_4_VIDEO
