I am so sorry for your loss. Just know that God, whose name is Jehovah, is close to the brokenhearted. He saves those who are crushed in spirit. The Bible says at Acts 24:15 that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous. We can trust that because God never tells a lie. Until then, take good care of yourselves and one another.
