My condolences in the loss of your dear loved one. When our loved ones die it pains our hearts. Our loving God Jehovah is aware of this and he comforts us by means of his word the Bible. Psalm 68:20 says; The true God is for us a God who saves; And Jehovah the Sovereign Lord provides escape from death. Also 1 Peter 5:7 says : While you throw all your anxiety on him, because he cares for you. May these scriptures help you to cope during this sad time.
