To the family and friends, I am very sorry to hear of your loss. I hope you can find comfort in this scripture taken from 2 Corinthians 3,4 where it says: "Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all of our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God.". I also hope that these scriptures might be of some comfort as well, Philippians 4:6, 7, Isaiah 26:19, and John 5:28, 29.
