I am so sorry for your loss. While nothing will completely take away your grief, I have found the scripture at Isaiah 25:8 to be especially comforting where it promises that soon Jehovah God will swallow up death forever and wipe away the tears from all faces. May God comfort you and give you peace in the days ahead. 2 Corinthians 1:3,4.

I would like to express my deepest sympathy to the family. During this difficult time, God is near to those that are broken at heart, and those who are crushed in spirit He saves. Psalms 34:18

The Bryson, Sills family and loved ones of Annie have my deepest sympathy. Our loving heavenly Father, Jehovah God, (Psalm 83:18) promises us at Revelations 21: 4; "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore." Jehovah invites you to throw all your burdens on him and he will sustain you in your time of grief. Psalms 34:18 The family is in my prayers and I offer my heartfelt condolences.
