    We don't know what to say except that we love you. We can't understand exactly how you feel, but Jehovah does and will keep raising you up. We hope that our prayers will help a little. Revelation 21:3.4 reads; "The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them and they will be his people. And God himself will will be with them. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more, neither will outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away."

    God cares for the brokenhearted; Psalm 34:18 assures us that he is close to them. Psalm 147:3 says: "He heals the brokenhearted; He binds up their wounds". Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! (Psalm 36:7; 1 Peter 5:7)
