To the family and friends of Mrs Carol, I'm so very sorry for your loss. She seemed like such a beautiful person...Jehovah God knows our heart can be “broken and crushed by such a lost. (Ps. 51:17) He certainly wants to help us deal with this situation, for “he is healing the brokenhearted ones, and is binding up their painful spots.” (Ps. 147:3) Even in severe situations, God can bring relief to a stricken heart.
The Bible speaks of a promise at Rev 21:3-4 of a time when there will be no more tears, or pain or even mourning because death will be done away with. I look forward to this. You can too. You can learn more about this hope at jw.org.
Again, I am so very sorry for your loss,
