So very sorry for the loss of your dear loved one. In times of this nature, all of us need encouragement and comfort, how we appreciate those who lovingly offer it! Comforting implies taking time to listen, understand, and help. I pray that you find that with your ‘family and friends’ as well as the promises of Jesus at Luke 23:43 where he said: “Truly I tell you today, you will be with me in Paradise.” A better place.
