    It’s difficult losing someone we love no matter what the circumstances may be. I am truly sorry for your loss. May Jehovah, ‘the God of all comfort’, comfort you and help you to cope during these most difficult days. Find hope in a God that offers a better future for us all. Revelation 21:4 states, ‘And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore, the former things have passed away.’ I offer you my sincere condolence.
