Bereavement is indeed one of the most painful emotions the human body has to deal with during our lifetime.
The pain you may be feeling right now can seem almost unbearable at times but will be fully understood and felt by the people we have in our Bereavement Support Group. They offer a listening ear and friendly support when you need it.
A PRAYER FOR THOSE WHO MOURN
WORDS OF COMFORT FROM THE BIBLE:

"These, the ransomed of the Lord, will go home along that road to Zion, singing the songs of everlasting joy. For them all sorrow and all sighing will be gone forever; only joy and gladness will be there." Isaiah 35:10,
"Weeping may go on all night, but in the morning there is joy." Psalm 30:5
"He heals the brokenhearted, binding up their wounds." Psalm 147:3.
"I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart! And the peace I give isn't fragile like the peace the world gives. So don't be troubled or afraid." John 14:27.
"Brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about those who fall asleep, or to grieve like the rest of men, who have no hope. We believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in Him. According to the Lord's own word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left till the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord Himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage each other with these words." I Thessalonians 4:13-17
"Don't be so surprised! Indeed the time is coming when all the dead in their graves shall hear the voice of God's Son, and shall rise again—those who have done good, to eternal life; and those who have continued in evil, to judgment." John 5:28-29,
