You have my deepest sympathy for your loss. While you are grieving, I hope you will be comforted by Jesus' promise of the earthly resurrection(Acts 24:15)when all those who are now sleeping in death(John 11:11-15)will be raised up and restored back to life, with the hope of eternal life, on the renewed Paradise earth.-John 5:28,29; Luke 23:43. Until that blessed event unfolds, may GOD grant you peace and comfort, during this grievous time.-Matthew 5:4.
