    I am so sorry for your loss. May “the God of all comfort” (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) comfort and soothe your heart. His promises, found in the Holy Scriptures, can offer much hope. It assures us at John 5:28,29 that our loved ones will be remembered and brought back to life in the resurrection. Please allow God’s Word to strengthen you and help you to endure this most difficult time.

  2. Dani says:

    I am so sorry for your loss. May you find comfort in your loving memories, and in knowing that “God is near to those that are broken at heart; and those who are crushed in spirit he saves.” (Psalms 34:18) With deepest sympathy
