My sincere condolences to your family. I know it's not easy to deal with at this moment. May God "who comforts us in all our trials" (2 Cor 1:4) comfort you and your family at such a difficult time. I know Jehovah God will help you to endure because He invites us to approach Him in prayer, to pour out our heart to him. (Psalm 62:8) Please find comfort in knowing that God understands your  grief and He cares for you  (1Peter 5 :7).
