    You have my deepest sympathy during this time of sorrow. The loss of a loved one is painful. I’d like to share scripture that may bring comfort.

    Isa. 55:11 promises us…So my word that goes forth from my mouth will prove to be. It will not return to me without result. But it will certainly do that in which I have delighted and it will have certain success in that in which I have sent it.

    Ps. 116:14 lets us know…Precious in the eyes of Jehovah is the death of his loyal ones.

    1Cor. 15:42 also lets us know…So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption, it is sown in dishonor, it is raised up in glory. It is sown in weakness, it is raised up in power.

    Isa. 25:8 also promises us…He will actually swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will certainly wipe the tears from all faces.

    I sincerely want these scriptures to bring hope and help your family endure.
