    I am so very sorry for your loss. The death of a loved one can be so difficult to cope with. May the bible’s words at 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 bring you much peace of mind when it says that God gives you the strength to cope. In John 5:28 and Isaiah 25:8 we have a wonderful promise from God that soon we will see our loved ones again and welcome them back on a paradise earth. These terrible things will not be remembered…Revelation 21:4, Psalm 37:29. Take care and may you find comfort in these words.
