    I am sorry for your loss. Please find peace and comfort in knowing God cares for you and will help you in your time of need. And may your family and friends be a source of encouragement at this time. At 1 Pet. 5:7, God invites you to “throw all your anxiety upon Him.” Continue to rely on God for strength during this difficult time of grief.
