    Dear Bryant Family, I want to express my sincere condolence. Almighty God is aware of the pain we experience when we lose a love one therefore, Jehovah God provides comfort in the Bible at 2Corinthians 1:3-4. Further, Revelation 21:3-5 states a positive hope for the future on earth. May these scriptures comfort your family and friends.
