My deepest sympathy for this most unimaginable difficult time.

Please find comfort in knowing that our Heavenly Father too recognizes death as an enemy (1Cor. 15:26) and truly understands the depth of your grief and loss. He hears and is listening to your prayers for comfort. "God is close to the brokenhearted; he saves those who are crushed in spirit.”—Psalm 34:18, 19.

Again I am so sorry for your loss.
