In reading the recent obituaries, I came across that of your loved one. I would like to offer my deepest condolences.Whi le death is an inevitable part of life, it is very painful and difficult to deal with. So my purpose in writing you is to offer some encouraging Bible thoughts to help you through these trying times.Only through God's word the Bible can we find real comfort. The Bible calls God, "the father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort" 2 Corinthians 1:3,4. So never give up, even at your lowest, Jehovah God, will answer and comfort you.
