Please accept my sincere condolences and prayers. May you find the joy and peace you require to strengthen you at this time.

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes: and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. Revelations 21:4
