My sympathy to your family. When we lost a loved one in death. The pain, the grief, and the feelings of helplessness can seem unbearable. At such times, we need to go to God’s Word for comfort in 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4 " Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, 4. who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God." I hope these words help you remember Jehovah is the God of comfort.

I would like to express my deepest sympathy in the loss of your dear loved one. The death of a loved one is one of the most devastating experiences a person can face. Our loving God Jehovah is aware of this and he comforts us by means of his word the Bible. Psalm 34:18 says: Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit. The Bible also reveals that it is God’s purpose to restore the dead to life when he resurrect all those in the memorial tombs (John 5:28,29). Then they will have the opportunity to live on a paradise earth free from sickness and death (Revelation 21:3,4). May these scriptures bring comfort and calmness of heart to you at this time of bereavement.
