To the Perkins Family, To lose a loved one in death is tragic. The grief and sorrow can be overwhelming. Your need for comfort is granted through the comfort coming from the God of all comfort. (2 Cor. 1:3,4) "For if we have faith that Jesus died and rose again, so too God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep in death...." -1 Thess. 4:14

My deep deep condolences to the Perkins family: May you reflect on the precious memories that you made with your loved one. I would like to share what helped us when our precious daughter died and later when my precious husband fell asleep in death as well. I appreciated the calls and visits from all over the U.S. but I recall just sitting down and reading different Scriptures and meditating on them. It was so comforting to read that God cares for us personally... (1Peter 5:6, 7). Yes, He cares, He sees our pain & feels it. And, He Jehovah God will in His due time do away with All sicknesses & death (Isaiah 33:24 & Isaiah 25:8). He is indeed a God of comfort. Oh, wow He promises the hope of seeing our precious loved ones again (John 5:28, 29) and says where (Psalms 37:11). He always keeps His word. I hope that these few Scriptures were of some comfort to you as they were to me.
