I offer my deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Jennifer DeSimone, I know that I don't know you, what you are feeling or what you are going through, but I would like to share with you what brings me comfort in hopes that you will find comfort as well. That comfort comes from Jehovah Gods word the Bible, it gives us a wonderful hope for the future to help us cope with the present, overcome the past, and give us something to strive for so we can walk with determination toward the future. There are countless scriptures in the bible that bring us comfort but this one stood out to me. Revelation 21:3, 4 says “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. 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.” Jehovah God himself promises that one day in the future he will bring back our loved ones to a life of perfect health and happiness on a paradise earth. Where the stinging pain of death will never reach us and we will only feel the joy of everlasting life.

My heart is broken for you, but my hope is in the reunion we will have with Jennifer in heaven with our Father. And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28 We may not understand why, but He’s there for you... to comfort and love you. He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. Psalm 147:3 Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6 Your family is in my prayers!

I’m so sorry for your loss. There is nothing more painful than losing a loved one. I would like to share an encouraging scripture from the Bible. Revelation 21:4 says And he will wipe out every tears from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. Please read this scripture accompanied with your Bible. I hope you get the comfort and the peace that you deserve during this time of bereavement.
