No words however kindly meant, can sooth your pain away. We hope the love around you, memories, and heartfelt prayers of those who mourn with you, help you through today. May you, in time, also find some comfort in knowing that God has promised to "swallow up death forever" (Isaiah 25:8), and to use his Son to resurrect our dear loved ones who have passed away (John 5:28). May those promises somehow strengthen you.
