I have lost dear loved ones too, but i still do not know how another person feel. There is someone who do know how you feel and that is the Almighty God Jehovah, he knows and feel your pain.(1Peter 5:7) And He has promised in the near future to do away with death by means of Jesus Chris ransom sacrifice.(Matthew 20:28),(Revelation 21:3,4) May these Scriptures comfort your heart during this time of sorrow. I am sorry.

To the Family of Willie James Harp, I'm sorry for your loss and hope that the "God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our trials" strengthen you during this difficult time. When losing loved ones in death, I have found comfort and hope from reading scriptures such as Acts 24:15 -"And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous."

To the family and friends of Mr. Willie Harp, I am so sorry for your loss.  Losing a loved one in death is never easy and in the Bible at 1 Corinthians 15:26 it calls death an enemy which the Almighty God Jehovah will do bring to nothing or do away with.  May the God who supplies endurance and comfort sustain each of you in your time of need through the comfort from the scriptures, prayer, and friends. (Romans 15:5) My sincere sympathy.
