My deepest sympathy in the loss of your beloved family member. Even though your hearts may be heavy with grief, please remember that our heavenly father also feels your pain of grief. Through his word the Bible he offers comfort to help you cope. Psalm 34:18 says; Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit. Also the wonderful promise at Isaiah 25:8; He (God) will swallow up death forever. And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe the tears from all faces. Because God cares for you (1Peter 5:7) he will help you to cope at this difficult time.
