  5. I recently read about the death of your dear loved one. Even though we are not acquainted please accept our sincerest condolences. Job 1:2,18,19 & Job 10:1 says: ‘ I will give vent to my concern about myself. I will speak in the bitterness of my soul.’ This was after the loss of his 10 children. Job needed to vent his concerns, he needed someone to talk to. Having someone to talk to may help you and your family cope during this difficult time.
