I am sorry to hear of your loss. One of the most difficult things we have to deal with is the death of a loved one. The Bible promises: "God is close to the brokenhearted." It also says; "Throw your burden on God and he will sustain you." (Psalm 34:18 and 55;22) I hope this message will help you cope with the loss of your loved one.
