Hertig Family, I am so sorry to read about the death of your loved one. Something that helped me when my grandfather died was the hope found in the bible. It assures us God is near to those that are broken at heart and those who are crushed in spirit he saves. We read about this at Psalm 34:18. More than anything else, a relationship with God can help you to cope with the death of someone you love. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
