I am sorry for your loss. A man of faith who respects God's word and the shed blood of Jesus is not very common these days. May the words found in Ac 24:15 be of comfort "And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous." Jehovah's Kingdom ruled by Jesus Christ will rid death once and for all.
