I am so sorry for your loss. Losing a loved one in death is one of the hardest things we ever have to face. I get hope from the scriptures. In particular Revelation 21:3 and 4. This is one reason we pray the Lords Prayer. We want God's name to be sanctified so his will can be done. I hope this comforts you as much as it does me.
