My deepest condolences go out to your family, it's never easy losing a loved one. You might take comfort in God's promise found at Revelation 21:4 where he says "he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." This verse gave me some hope when I experienced loss, I pray it will do the same for you. May your warm memories also give you strength to endure this hard time.
