The pain death brings is unmatched , the overwhelming feeling of sorrow can be too much to bear sometimes so please realise that I mean it when I say I’m sorry for your loss. I appreciate that i do not know you personally but unfortunately death Is common amongst us all. I hope you can find comfort from God in his word the bible in Revelation 21 vs 4 And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”

We are sorry for your recent loss. Eleni helped many people in her life. The death of a loved one is difficult, continue to lean on God, friends and family. God will always give you comfort, as found in the Bible at (2Cor 1:3-4). He will soon take away death (1Cor 15:26), and he will soon return our loved ones by way of the resurrection (John 5:28-29).
Please search the article “When someone you love dies”, at it greatly helped us through a difficult time and we hope it can help you to gain some comfort.

Our deepest condolences to the family. When our loved ones fall asleep in death, words alone cannot ease the pain of our loss. Our loving God Jehovah understands how we feel and he comforts us by means of his word the Bible. Psalm 147:3 reads He (God) heals the brokenhearted; He binds up their wounds. We can also find comfort from Jesus words at John 5:28-29 “The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out”. May these scriptures bring comfort and calmness of heart to you during the difficult days ahead.
