    To the Family and friends of Mr. Harvey Nixon, I am so sorry to hear about your loss, you have our condolences. The Bible describes Jehovah God as "the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our trials" (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) . Pour out your heart to him in prayer, he promises that all who do so will have their thoughts and feeling soothed by "the peace of God that surpasses all understanding".( Philippians 4:6,7). Also, allow God to help you heal by means of his Word the Bible. ( John 5:21,28,29; John 11:11-14,38-44; Revelation 21:3,4)
