What has helped my family to cope were scriptures such as John 5:28,29; Revelation 21:3,4; 1Peter 5:6,7. Reading and thinking on these scriptures can help to soothe your pain and bring you comfort and strength in the weeks and months to come. Knowing that our loving Heavenly Father understands and cares about what you’re going through can be a real source of strength. I pray you will find solace and hope in those scriptures.
