My condolences to the family in the loss of your dear loved one. There is nothing more painful in life then losing a loved one in death. Our loving God Jehovah understand how you feel because death was not a part of his original purpose for mankind. He provides comfort from his word the Bible to help cope with the loss. Psalm 94:19 says;”When anxieties overwhelmed me. You (God) comforted and soothed me” And the wonderful promise at John 5:25 says; Most truly I say to you, the hour is coming, and the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God (Jesus), and those who have paid attention will live.

Your family is in my thoughts and prayers in this difficult time of loss.
