Dear _______ Family: Please accept my deepest condolences. I would like to share a scripture with you that has helped many who have lost loved ones. Psalms 147:3 “He heals the brokenhearted; He binds up their wounds.” Our Heavenly Father Jehovah, more than anyone, understands your pain, lean on him to help you through your grief. Philippians 4:6, 7 and Psalm 55:22.
