I met many people in the work that I do, and it saddened me to read of your loss. Please except my sincerest condolences and find hope in the scripture where God promises that our loved ones are in no pain (Ecclesiastes 9:5) and are peaceful waiting for the day when God promises that death, pain, and mourning will be no more. (Revelations 21:3,4 NWT)
