I am so sorry for your loss. It is never easy to accept the loss of our loved ones. The Bible promises that Jehovah God is close to the brokenhearted and he saves those who feel crushed in spirit. (Psalms 34:18) God will give your family and friends the strength to cope with death. He promises to do that for all who sincerely approach him in prayer. (Psalms 34:17) My prayer for you is that you receive the comfort God gives and also you get answers to any questions that you may have regarding the death of your loved one. Reply to this comment
