I extend my heartfelt condolences to your family during this time of grief. God’s word tells us to “throw all our anxiety on Him, because He cares for us,”( 1 Peter 5:7). Jehovah God knows what you are going through and is there for you. Pour your hearts out to Him in prayer because He is the “Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others”. ( 2 Corinthians 1:3,4)
