    The death of your loved one Betty is one of the most devastating experiences your family will face. At times, the pain of the loss will feel unbearable. Please know that there are friends who care about you and your family during this difficult time and more importantly Psalm 34:18 tells us that “God is near to those that are broken at heart.” We pray that Jehovah the God of all comfort is with your family during this difficult time of grief.
