Here is a scripture that will comfort you. (John 5:28, 29) says . . . for the time will come in which those in the memorial tombs will hear your voice and come out. I hope this helps you.

I am sorry for your loss; please accept my deepest sympathy. I hope you will find your strength and comfort in Jesus’ promises of the earthly resurrection(:Acts 24:15) and the renewed Paradise earth, where death will be no more and no family will have to mourn the death of a loved one.-Revelation 21:3,4; Luke 23:43. May GOD(Psalms 83:18) grant you peace and comfort now during this grievous time.-Matthew 5:4.
