Dear child,
Don’t cry.
She’s in God’s hands now.
Sometimes, there's nothing more you can do than to place all your trust in God and move on.

the memories just come rushing back.... and it's true. sometimes there is just nothing you can do but trust. there are some things in life that you, just can't control. but, you can always believe, and trust, that everything will be ok.
i've had to, and am still learning, to take this to heart.

While I am terribly sorry for your loss, you should never try not to cry when you feel the need to cry :( It's important to deal with a loss and if you force yourself to hold back your tears, you will hurt even more. Even if you have hope, it's okay to cry about what has happened :)

There's a support group called Grief Beyond Belief which offers "Faith-free support for non-religious people grieving the death of a loved one", here's their facebook page: www.facebook.com/faithfreegrie…
Even if you are religious, it might have some helpful stuff if you're looking for some guidance on what to say that doesn't involve religion :)
As an atheist myself, I would personally appreciate it if my loved ones didn't bring up the afterlife or deities because they know I don't believe in them. Practical support (like helping with dinner, kids etc) and just general kind words and comfort is what I would offer. :)

thanks for the link =),
it's much appreiciated,
i'm not an atheist but there were times when i've had my doubts concerning religion,
such things as "why would such a loving god allow bad things to happen to good people" and such things,
i am not a christian either though,
i consider myself a spiritual person,
though i do believe there are possibly supernatural forces at work in our world, i am not religious in any way,
my way of thinking is that there is a difference between religion and spirituality,
religion, to me is a system established in order to control a certain group of people by expressing how society believes they should live their lives,
spirituality is what you feel and believe in your heart based on faith,m
but thats just me though, please dont take offense,
i dont mean to start any debates or anything =),
thanks again for the link

No offense caused whatsoever! I also consider myself a spiritual person, but it took me a while to figure that out because I had always though spiritual and religious were the same thing.
You're most welcome. Hope you have a nice day :)

Admin: There's no need to be mean, if you don't know what having someone die feels like, please don't make rude comments about someone else. It puts alot of people in depression to see someone die.

And may I add, this helps in more ways then one. It's almost like a metaphor for life, "She's in God's hands now" is a very versatile phrase, as "She's" could be replaced with so many struggles, so again, great job.

Firstly, I'm sorry for your loss, i'm really sorry. I know how hard losing someone to death is. 
This is so real, it's so relatable.  Trusting in God in the wake of something terrible is one of the hardest things to do, and brave. So kudos to you, in this hard time, I'll be sure to pray for you. you deserve it, and you need it.

I know how it feels to lose someone close to you or just someone that you feel matters, however much, to you. I watched my own family pass before I was put in an orphanage. It's okay to cry about it. Remember that the people that pass are always going to be there watching and making sure that you will be alright. Even if you don't know me, know that there are plenty of people out there who support you every step of the way, regardless of if you can see them or not. 
And maybe someday you'll see them again in a different form.
This is what I believe and what I hope for you.
I'm sorry.
