    The Rivers Family says:
    My condolences in the loss of your dear loved one. The pain that death of a loved one brings can sometimes overwhelm us. Our loving God Jehovah knows how we feel and he provides comfort from his word the Bible. Psalm 34:18 says: Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit. Comfort also can be found in the words at Revelation 21:4; And he (God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. May these scriptures bring comfort and calmness of heart to you at this time of bereavement.
