My sincere condolences for the loss of your Husband. I know that losing a mate can be a difficult time in life.
What has helped me is the wonderful hope given in the bible at Jo 5:28,29 where God will remember our dead loved ones and will bring them back to life on earth. Ps 37:11,29.
Imagine the day when there are no more tears of sorrow and death and pain are gone forever. Rev 21:3,4.
May you find comfort in these promises and in the memories you cherish.
