So sorry for your loss! May the Holy Spirit comfort you while you travel through this storm. A loss of a loved one does not get better but it does get easier to bare with time. My deepest sympathy and heart-felt prayers are with all who knew and loved him. "For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him". 1 Thessalonians 4:14. "Wherefore comfort on another with these words". 1 Thessalonians 4:18
