I’m very sorry for the loss of your love one. Times like these are very hard to deal with. May you receive strength and encouragement from the the God who promise that soon we’ll be able to see our love ones again. They will “hear his voice and come out” from their memorial tombs.- John 5:28,29. JW.org
