    My sincere condolences to your family. You are not alone during this time of great loss. The one who gave life to all living creatures is certainly capable of restoring life to someone who has died. Psalms 83:18 he is identified as the Creator of life. God has resurrected humans in the past on earth through his son Jesus Christ and he is eager to do it again. John 11:29-44. He even refers to death an enemy, 1 Corinthians 15:26. So take comfort in these scripture, for you are not alone.
