The passing of a dear loved one, is a difficult experience for family members. Sorry for your loss. It is through the privilege of prayer, that a bereaved family can experience God's love and comfort in the most intimate way. May the family find comfort through prayerful reliance on Jehovah, the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. He invites you all to throw your burdens on him and he will sustain you in this time of grief, because he cares for you. 1Peter 5:6, 7; Psalms 55:22; 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4.
