My heart truly goes out to the family and friends during this difficult time. In Genesis 23:2 it saids, "So Sarah died in Kirʹi·ath-arʹba, that is, Hebʹron, in the land of Caʹnaan, and Abraham began to mourn and to weep over Sarah." We're not alone in grieving over our love ones. It took some time for Abraham to cope with the loss of his wife. But Isaiah 26:19 saids, " Your dead will live.My corpses will rise up.Awake and shout joyfully,You residents in the dust! For your dew is as the dew of the morning,And the earth will let those powerless in death come to life. So Jehovah promises to resurrect our love ones. So I hope this scripture give you all comfort in knowing what awaits us in the future.

Sincere sympathy to the family during this difficult time. Isaiah 25:8 tells us that death will someday be no more. May these words bring you peace and hope for a bright future.

May God bless you in this time of deep sorrow,"while you throw all your anxiety on him because he cares for you" (1 Pet. 5:7).

I'm truly sorry for the loss of your dear loved one. Losing someone we love leaves the heart heavy simply b/c it hurts. Please know that others care and that God(Psalm 83:18) heals the brokenhearted and binds wounds, Psalm 147:3
