I am a Bible student. I read about your lose and wanted to offer my condolences. We all have lost someone close to us and wonder if we will ever see them again, which raises the question. Can the dead live again? Acts 24:15 answers that for us. For more information go to the website jw.org. I really hope this information can bring you some comfort in your time of grief.

Soon “the last enemy, death is to be brought to nothing.” Then Robert will never face death again. Until his resurrection, allow Robert’s memory to live on. 1 Corinthians 15:26
