2 Corinthians 1:3,4 gives us the assurance that "the God and Father of our Lord Jesus christ, the Father of tender mercies" is "the God of all comfort" and he "comforts us in all our trials". James 5:11; God is very tender in affection (very compassionate) and merciful". Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! (Psalm 36:7; 1 Peter 5:7)
