Death of our loved ones can leave us with a lot of pain, sorrow, and feelings of helplessness, but know that the "God of comfort," will comfort each of you during this difficult time. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) Jehovah God also promises us at Isaiah 25:8 that he will swallow up death forever. May you find comfort in the scriptures to help you get through this difficult time.
