I want to send my deepest sympathy to the family of Mr. Tyrone James.
The bible tells us we can gain comfort from God, even during times of sorrow. We pray to our heavenly father for help to cope with the sorrow felt from the death of a loved one.
By prayer and supplication, let your petitions be made known to God; and the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6
May you find comfort by relying on our heavenly father and learning more about the blessings of God's kingdom.
