I am so sorry for the loss of your loved one. There is a very comforting scripture at Isaiah 25:8. It says that soon Jehovah will wipe away all of the tears and that death will be no more. So we can all look forward to a time when death will be done away with. I hope that this scripture can bring some true comfort during these difficult times.

Dear Kelly Family: Please accept my deepest sympathies for your recent loss. I know how hard it can be to deal with. Our heavenly father did not create us with the ability to deal with such things on our own. That is why in the bible at
2 Corinthians 1:3,4 -he promises to be the God of tender mercies and the God of all comfort. We can expect that support from our heavenly father because he cares for us. Im sure with his help you will be able to overcome this tragedy. Again, I am sorry for your loss.

To the families and loved ones of Ms. Kelly, who we know will be dearly missed. Almighty God promise at Revelation 21:4, that he will wipe away all our tears. And death, pain, and sorrow will be no more. So you can take great comfort in drawing close to God in prayer. And he will sustain and help support your families to endure, during these difficult times. My deepest condolences to all of your loved ones.
