I am very sorry for your loss. Although the pain is great now, the Bible points us to a future time, when God will destroy death and it’s stings. “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” (Revelation 21:4) Death will be so far removed from mankind that it will not even be called to mind. As for those now sleeping in death, they will be brought back to life, and have the prospect of living forever in paradise on earth. (John 5:28,29) May this hope for the future comfort your greiving hearts.
