Our Heavenly Father knows our sadness. He knows our grief and to all our family and friends He will give relief. His blessed promise will never fail and He will guide us when the death our loved one claims. Jesus knows our sorrow. He knows our pain. He will be our Comforter; He will be with us all the way.
