    If you don't have the phone.. you can't recover its contents

    From your description it does sound like you never set up your email account to sync with its online sources nor did you set up any backup solution for your other files (i.e. photos, videos, etc.). There's simply nothing to recover if you never backed/synced anything up. You can double-check by using a web browser and log into your Google account to see if your files and things are there but if not. when your missing data only existed on your phone than it's lost to you. Or check your Verizon account to see there's any backup service that you forgot setting up previously.

    Set up a solid backup solution for your new phone now. Don't think about it, do it now so you don't go through the same occurrence again. Make sure your email, calendar, and contacts are syncing with your online Google account. Use the backup and sync function in the Google Photos app to backup your photos and videos into your online Google account. Make sure 'Find My Device' is enabled and linked to your current phone. Those are automatic functions. Another option is to install Samsung's Smart Switch utility on a computer and use it to make a backup of your phone, and then it's really important to do it on a regular basis.
