  18. So sorry to learn of the tragic accident and loss odnyour Alex,
    I wish to share comfort from the Bible at this terribly sad time.
     May God comfort and soothe your hearts with the wonderful resurrection hope as he understands your pain. May he help you cope with the wonderful promise at Revelation 21:4,5. “he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more”
     The Bible  says,at Job 14:15  “You will call and I myself shall answer you. For the work of your hands you will have a yearning.” God has a yearning and longs to reunite you again .
    There is  much Bible-based comfort on jw.org
