My sincere condolences for the loss of your dear loved one. Psalm 34:18 tells us that God is near to those that are broken at heart. During this difficult time you will be faced with a number of overwhelming emotions, remember to rely on “the God of all comfort.”( 2 Corinthians 1:3,4) for the strength needed to cope.
