    I’m sorry for your loss, and may you be comforted from God’s word at 2 Corinthians
    1:3,4:”Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those in any sort of tribulation through the comfort with which we ourselved are being comforted by God.”
    (Psalms 83:18)
    I hope that you are comforted at this time as you draw close to God in prayer.
