My condolences to the family, the bible describes a God of comfort, "who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the rcomfort that we receive from God." ( 2 Corinthians 1:3,4) May God comfort you during this during this difficult time and may you find comfort in his promise of a resurrection. ( John 5:28,29).
