The loss of a loved one is truly heartbreaking. Gods word the Bible can bring great comfort. 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4 says "Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God.
