    My condolences go out to the family. As you prepare to lay your loved one to rest, may you find comfort from your Bibles at Psalms 34:18. “ HE” is close to the brokenhearted and crushed in spirit. Nahum 1:7 tells us GOD is good, a stronghold in the day of distress. He is mindful of those seeking refuge in him.
