Reading of Tera's death has truly saddened me. My sincere condolences go to her family, especially her husband, and friends. May the comfort and support from family and friends help to soften your grief. Knowing that our Life-Giver and Creator is also aware of our distress can also comfort us. Psalm 31:7 says "For you (God) have seen my affliction; you are aware of my deep distress." Like a loving friend who is aware of your grief and helps, God stands ready to comfort you and give you the strength needed to cope with your loss now and in the days ahead. May you have God's peace.
