    I’m sorry for the loss of your dear loved one, Darrel, may you find comfort in the God of all comfort, Jehovah, (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) in his word, the bible, in Psalms 34:18: Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit. God’s word, also says in Isaiah 25:8: He will swallow up death forever, And the sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces….For Jehovah himself has spoken it. (Psalms 83:18; Titus 1:2) Isaiah 33:24; Revelation 21:3-5; / John 5:28,29; John 11:25,26; Acts 24:15. This is what God’s Kingdom, under Jesus Christ rulership, will accomplish in the near future for all those who love righteousness. The true God, also promises in his word, in Psalms 37:11,29:.The meek will possess the earth, And they will find exquisite delight in the abundance of peace 29: The righteous will possess the earth, And they will live forever on it.; Psalms 37:34. (New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures)
