Nikki I'm very sorry for your loss. The bible offers beautiful words of comfort to help ease the pain. Hosea 13:14 assures us that God will restore life to our loved ones. He hates to see your grief. 1Corinthians 15:26 says he shall destroy death. Our tears will be no more, Revelation 21:4. May you be comforted at this time
