So sorry to hear of your loss. To lose a loved one in death can be the most tragic thing to happen. Your grief and sorrow can be overwhelming but your faith will be strengthen. May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and gave everlasting comfort and good hope by means of undeserved kindness, comfort your hearts and make you firm in every good deed and word. -2 Thess. 2:16,17.
