Stephanie, dear, I do not know your family but my heart goes out to you in such a deep time of sorrow. Only God will be able to give you the great comfort you need. He says in Matthew 7:7 & 8. ASK and it shall be given you; SEEK and ye shall find; KNOCK and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh find the; and to him that knocked it shall be opened. Also seek the Lord’s Strength and believe and He will be with you. God bless you and your family. lol
