I saw the notice of the loss of your loved one and wanted to send my condolences to your family. No matter where we live or we may not know each other, we sympathize with others experiencing grief. The loving concern of family and friends is priceless. Another loving provision is the loving concern that comes from God. He promises that he "is near to those that are broken at heart; and those who are crushed in spirit he saves". (Psalm 34:18) His desire is for us to know that He desires that all undergoing such a trial to lean on him. He lovingly assures us to "throw your burden on Jehovah, and he will sustain you". My prayers are with you and your family that you continue to stay close to God in prayer. Never give up hope in the promise that His dear son, Jesus made that "all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". (John 5:28, 29)
