  • I am sorry to hear of your loss. The death of a loved one is one of the most devastating experiences a human can face. At times, the loss can seem unbearable. The Bible promises; “God is near to the brokenhearted.” It also says: “Throw your burden on God and he will sustain you.” (Psalms 34;18 and 55:22) I hope this message will help you cope with the loss of your loved on
