My condolences in the loss of your dear loved one.

The pain of grief that death of a loved one brings can sometimes overwhelm us.

Our loving God Jehovah knows how we feel and he provides comfort from his word the Bible. Psalm 34:18 says: Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit. Comfort also can be found in the words at Revelation 21:4; And he (God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.
