I’m so sorry for your loss. I too have recently lost my loved one in death. This loss can be so overwhelming. Fortunately, I found comfort in God’s promise that one day I would see my dear loved one again. (John 5:28,29) May God give you the peace & comfort you need at this difficult time. (Philippians 4:6,7)
