"Sorry to hear about the passing of your loved one. May the comforting promises from God ease your pain during this difficult time.  One of which is found at Isaiah 25:8. There it says "He will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces.”

Again, please accept my sincere condolences for your loss."
