I wanted to express my heartfelt condolences to the entire family. For right now, there is no detour around grief, no shortcut through mourning. However, 2 Corinthians 4:7 says that God can give us, “... power beyond what is normal...”, to go from one day to the next. This does not mean that we no longer mourn or forget our loved one. It means we recover. We recover because of our hope. The hope Jesus Christ talked about found in John 5:28 which says, “... all those in the memorial tomb will hear his voice and come out...”. Jesus was speaking of the resurrection. That is our amazing hope! The Bible likens our hope to an anchor. Just like an anchor stabilizes a ship, our hope stabilizes us and keeps us from drowning in overwhelming sadness. One way that God comforts us today is by moving people who care about us to give us words of encouragement that we need to hear. May the God of comfort be your comfort now, during this time of sorrow. If you wish, you may contact me to ascertain more about the resurrection hope found in The Holy Bible.

I extend my deepest sympathies to the family.  When a family member dies, our pain and grief can be unbearable. May the God of all comfort (2 Cor. 1:3, 4) give the family the strength and comfort in this time of need. God promises that death will be no more (Rev 21:4). As we wait on that promise to be fulfilled,  may the God of comfort give you the strength to endure.
