    I'm very sorry for your loss. The bible provides words of comfort to help us cope, Rev 21:4; John 5:28,29. Even at times when we may feel we cant express ourselves in words, and tears flow, God(Psalm 83:18) can still hear us, Psalm 145:19. He soon promises to wipe away our tears and swallow up death forever, Isaiah 25:8

    We're so sorry to hear you are grieving the loss of your dear loved one. May you find strength and some comfort in the words found in Nahum 1:7 which reads: ”Jehovah is good, a stronghold in the day of distress. He is mindful of those seeking refuge in him.” Our loving God cares about us and is ready to bring us comfort if we allow him (1John 5:14). He also has made the provision of a resurrection RIGHT HERE ON EARTH when it is restored into a beautiful paradise. Can you see yourself welcoming back to life your dear loved one?
