I am so very sorry for your loss. The Bible makes this comforting promise: "Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted, He saves those who are crushed in spirit." (Psalm 34:18) It also assures us: "Throw your burden on Jehovah, and he will sustain you." (Psalm 55:22) May these thoughts bring you a measure of comfort at this difficult time.
