    I can’t imagine the pain and sorrow you must feel losing a beautiful precious life. ….but our heavenly Father Jehovah does. It tells us at Psalms 34:18 ” Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted. He saves those who are crushed in spirit. It saddened him when we shed tears of sorrow. Through his Words he gives us comfort and hope of seeing our dear loved ones again who have fallen asleep in death. As God’s words promise at Isaiah 26:19 “Your dead ones will live. ..They will rise up.”. May your warm memories also give you strength and comfort in these difficult times. With Deep Sympathy!
