I am so sorry. Words cannot express how heartbroken I am for you. That is why, during times like this, I try to look to the Bible for comfort. Scriptures such as Psalms 46:1 and 55:22 tell us to throw our burdens upon God because He wants to be there to comfort us. There, it also says that He will brace us up and give us strength when we need it most. I have found that the best way to benefit from God’s offer is by getting to know His real name which is found at Psalms 83:18. I hope these scriptures, and others throughout the Bible that give us such a wonderful hope for the future, can bring you a measure of comfort. Your family has my sincerest condolences.
David and Tara, While our hearts break for you we also know what a precious angel you have delivered to Heaven. What a strong and faithful servant you both are to our heavenly Father. We will keep your family in our prayers and you have our sympathy and love.
