Offering my sincere condolences for the loss of your loved one. Draw close to God in prayer, and the Bible promises that “he himself will sustain you.”—Psalm 55:22. Also a scripture that personally brings me comfort is at Isaiah 25:8.’- He will actually swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will certainly wipe the tears from all faces. And the reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth, for Jehovah himself has spoken it.
