My condolenses to the family, during these times nothing can take away the pains of losing a love one, but it is comforting to know that Jehovah knows how we feel, he gives us comfort by means of his word. Psalm 34: 18 says "Jehovan is close to the brokenhearted". he promise us that soon we will be reunited with our love ones again here on earth, and all suffering and death will be removed forever. Psalm 37:29 and Revelation 21: 3-5. May the family find comfort from theses promises.

My deepest sympathy in the loss of your beloved family member. When a loved one falls asleep in death it grieves the heart. The Bible has beautiful and comforting scriptures to help cope with the grief and sadness. Psalm 147:3 says: He (God) heals the brokenhearted; He binds up their wounds. And the promise for the future at Isaiah 26:19; Your dead will live. And the earth will let those powerless in death come to life.
