When you lose someone very precious, no one else can really know how you feel, except our Heavenly Father Jehovah God(Psalm 83:18),he cares for you and feels for you in your pain(1 Peter 5:7). He promise in the near future to do away with death and tears(Revelation 21:3,4),and to resurrect the dead(John 5:28,29). These Scriptures give real hope and strength during this time of sorrow.
