My condolences to the family on the loss of your loved one.
Losing someone you love is truly difficult and I know Barbara, will be missed. Please know our Heavenly Father holds out promises that can help us with our sorrow. One such promise is that death soon will be done away with forever (Revelation 21:4) and another promise is that "there is going to be a resurrection." (Acts 24:15). I pray these promises from God, who cannot lie, (Titus 1:2) brings you comfort.
