Sorry for your loss. May the family find comfort through prayerful reliance on Jehovah, the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. He invites you all to throw your burdens on him and he will sustain you in this time of grief, because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:6, 7; 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4. Psalms 55:22.
