  2. I am very sorry that death has robbed your family of someone you loved. In the Bible there are many scriptures that provide comfort. Our heavenly father knows your distress. Jehovah our GOD is referred to as the “The Father of tender mercies and the GOD of all comfort .” Please read 2 Cor 1:3-4, Psalms 34:18 and Isaiah 65:2 for words of comfort.
