Our family wanted to express their sincere condolences in this your time of sorrow. We found this verse encouraging during our time of loss. “Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God.” 2 Corinthians 1:3,4. At John 5:28,29 Jesus spoke about the hope of the resurrection. You are in our thoughts as well.
