I am sorry to hear of your loss. Proverbs 16:31 says: "Gray hair is a crown of beauty when it is found in the way of righteousness." So, death is not the end. The Bible promise: "There is going to be a resurrection of the righteous..." (Acts 24;15) The Bible gives us hope that one day our dead loved ones will be brought back to life.
