My deepest sympathy in the loss of your dear loved one. When our loved ones die it grieves our heart. The Bible has beautiful and comforting words to help us cope with our loss. Psalm 147:3 says; He (God) heals the brokenhearted; He binds up their wounds. Revelation 21:4 expresses a wonderful hope for the future. It says: And he (God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. May these scriptures provide comfort for you now and in the days ahead.
