Dear Richards family,
I am very sorry for your loss. A scripture that encouraged me very much when my grandma died is Psalms 34:18. It says “Jehovah is close to the broken-hearted and those who are crushed in spirit he saves.” We can be sure that God does care for us and we can have confidence in the Bible’s promise of a resurrection.
