I'm deeply sorry for the loss of your loved one. In this difficult time we can go to God's word the bible for comfort. At Acts 24:15 says "There is going to be a resurrection." Also at John 5:28, 29 we see where it says we have "A real hope of being reunited with your dead loved ones." Our prayers go out to the family.
