John, Charlene Family & Friends. Its sad to lose someone in death. What helped me the most was prayers and faith in Gods promise at Psalm 34:18 God is close to the broken heart: he saves those who are crushed in spirit. For more comforting scriptures, please visit: http://bit.ly/1K38EFt. Gods Kingdom that Jesus taught us to pray for will bring about these wonderful promises. My prayers are with you at this difficult time. If you wish to contact me at: ikeyes@msn.com
