I am so sorry for your loss. I hope you find comfort in Psalm 34:18. "God is close to the broken-hearted and saves those crushed in spirit. "Make God your comfort. He heals the broken-hearted. Psalm 147:3 and provides refuge and strength in times of distress. Psalm 46:1

I am so very sorry for your loss. The Bible makes this comforting promise: "Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted, he saves those who are crushed in spirit." (Psalm 34:18) It also assures us: "Throw your burden on Jehovah, and he will sustain you." (Psalm 55:22) May these thoughts bring you a measure of comfort at this difficult time.

Ruth was just the sweetest aunt ever. She deserved better than what the last few years had in store for her, but as always she handled things with grace and dignity. She will be missed. Dave Keller, Tulare, California
