    Suzie, Terri Family & Friends. It’s sad to lose someone in death. What helped me the most was prayers and faith in God’s promise at Psalm 34:18 “God is close to the broken heart: he saves those who are crushed in spirit.” For more comforting scripture, please visit: jw.org. God’s Kingdom that Jesus taught us to pray for will bring about these wonderful promise. My prayers are with you at this difficult time.
