I want to send my deepest sympathy to the family of Mr. Larry O. Newsome.
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.
“May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and gave everlasting comfort and good hope by means of undeserved kindness, comfort your hearts and make you firm.”—2 Thess. 2:16, 17.
May you find comfort by relying on our heavenly father and learning more about the blessings of God's kingdom.

The Family of Mr. Newsome, So sorry to hear of your loss. The loss of a love one is always hard because Jehovah never intended for us to die. he sent his son to die for us making the resurrection possible ;Isaiah 26:19 “Your dead will live.
My corpses will rise up.
Awake and shout joyfully,
You residents in the dust!
For your dew is as the dew of the morning,
And the earth will let those powerless in death come to life.
This is a promise from Almighty
I hope you will find some comfort in these words.

I am sorry to read about the passing of your loved one. Please accept my sincere condolences. May the family find comfort and support in the Holy Scriptures knowing that GOD is aware of your distress during this time of grief- Isaiah 66:13. GOD loves us and HE knows the pain that death causes those left behind.
