I am deeply saddened to hear of David's passing and I offer my sincere condolences to his family. His uplifting presence will surely be missed. In this time of grief and loss, it is reassuring to know that we can gain comfort from our creator. The bible gives this comforting promise: “Jehovah [God] is near to those that are broken at heart; and those who are crushed in spirit he saves.”(Psalms 34: 18) In the Bible, there is also hope for the future in which God “will swallow up death forever.” (Isaiah 25:8) May this give you peace and comfort as you go through this challenging time.
