  6. Dear Turner family, I’m so sorry to hear about the loss of your loved one. It’s heartbreaking to read of such sad news, and I know you must be going through an extremely difficult time. May Jehovah, ‘the God of tender mercies and the God of all comfort,’ be with your family. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) He is aware of the pain you are feeling. Psalm 147:3 says, ‘He heals the brokenhearted; He binds up their wounds.’ These are just a few of many scriptures that has brought comfort to my family during times of bereavement. I hope that they bring comfort to your family as well.
