I am so sorry for your loss. Losing someone you love is so difficult. No doubt there are many precious memories you can call to mind to share with family and friends, which can really prove to be comforting. Another source of comfort in found in the Scriptures, Isaiah 41:10 says, "Do not be afraid, for I am with you. Do not be anxious, for I am your God. I will fortify you, yes, I will help you, I will really hold on to you with my right hand of righteousness." How comforting to know that God is there for you especially at a time when you really need him. May the God of all comfort , comfort you as you go theough the days ahead. Once again, I am so sorry for your loss.
