Please accept my heartfelt sympathy. I didn't know your loved one. But know that our heavenly Father Jehovah God will remember our love one. The Bible says: "Throw your burden upon God, and he himself will sustain you. He heals the brokenhearted, nd He binds up our wounds, He assures us. Psalm1437:3.
