My deepest sympathy for your great loss. Although pain and sorrow fills your hearts at this time, may you find comfort and strength in the Almighty God words at Psalms 34:18 "Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit "  It saddened him when we shed tears of sorrow. God's Words gives us comfort and hope of seeing our dear loved ones again who have fallen asleep in death to be fulfilled right here in a New Paradise earth soon to come . Jesus promise at John 6:40.. the resurrection of our dear loved . May your warm memories also give you strength and comfort in these difficult times.
