  1. The loss of a dear loved one is one of the most difficult situations to face in life. It is especially trying for ones left behind who are close members of the family. It is comforting to know that our Heavenly Creator, understands your grief and more than that, longs to use His almighty power to restore life to the dead. This hope is recorded in Job 14:13-15. May these scriptures in God’s word grant you peace during this most sadden time. Please accept my condolences to the family.
