  1. Hi, I’m very sorry for your loss. I know that losing someone you love can be very difficult but I’ve found that the Bible can bring comfort at Isaiah 41:10 . It says ‘Do not be afraid, for I am with you. Do not be anxious, for I am your God. I will fortify you, yes, I will help you, I will really hold on to you with my right hand of righteousness.’? So this scripture reminds us that God is always there for us especially during times like these and we can go to him in prayer whenever.

  2. Dear family. So sorry to hear about your loved one. May fond memories carry you through this difficult time. May the resurrection hope at Act 24:15 bring you comfort.
