  3. I’m so deeply sorry for your loss. During this time of sorrow reading in God’s Word and prayer to our heavenly father Jehovah can bring us peace and comfort. A few verses that are encouraging are Revelation 21:4 and 2 Corinthians 1:3,4. I hope you find these verses comforting during this especially difficult time.
