God strengthens us by giving us "the power beyond what is normal" to make it through each passing day. Psalm 36:7 says: "God is our refuge and strength, a help that is readily found in times of distress". Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! (Psalm 36:7; 1 Peter 5:7)

Please accept my sincere condolences for your recent loss. My heart goes out to you and your family. I have always received comfort from the Bibles’ word at Philippians 4:7 which reads “and the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your heart and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus”.
I hope you can receive comfort from these words as well. Margo Simmons

I would like to express my sincere condolences to your family on the loss of your loved one; may your hearts find these promises from God's word comforting; "All those in the memorial tombs(graves)will hear his voice and come out"John 5:28,29. "There will be no more sickness" Isaiah 33:24. "And he will swallow up death forever"Isaiah 25:8. Do not dismay, God has promised and soon, it shall be so Titus 1:2

To the family, I am so sorry for your loss. I didn’t know your family member personally. However I do understand losing a loved one in death can be very hard. You may wonder why does this happen, and if there will be a time when death will cease to exist. I’d like to share with you a scripture I was comforted by when i experienced a death of a loved one. Revelation 21:4: “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” I hope you find comfort in this scripture like I did.

Sadly, the loss of a loved one to death is a truly, painful experience. However, according to the Bible, our wonderful God Jehovah offers comfort to us during all times (2 Corinthians 1:3,4). He has also given us hope in the form of the resurrection. John 5:28,29 says, "all in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". This gives us hope that one day those lost to us in death will be brought back to life. Please find comfort in these words and scriptures during this time of bereavement.
