My heartfelt condolences to Cynthia's family. Losing a loved one to death is one of the hardest things to deal with in life. May you find strength and comfort in each other but most of all in Jehovah God and his promises to end all sickness and death and restore life by means of a resurrection. (John 5:28, 29; Revelation 21:3, 4) Until that day comes it is my hope that you will draw comfort from the words found at Jeremiah 29:11, 12. There, we are assured that when we pray to Jehovah, he will listen.
