  • I’m very sorry for your loss, and I wanted to offer you some comfort that I’ve found in the Bible. Isaiah 25:8 says “God will swallow up death forever” and he promises to comfort us, saying he “will wipe away the tears from all faces.” I hope this verse brings you some comfort in this hard time.
