God cares for the brokenhearted; Psalm 34:18 assures us that he is close to them. Psalm 147:3 says: "He heals the brokenhearted; He binds up their wounds." May you find comfort and strength in knowing that God loves you and he cares for you. Psalm 36:7 says: "How precious your loyal love is, O God! In the shadow of your wings, the sons of men take refuge." Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! (Psalm 55:22; 2 Corinthians 1:3,4)

Dear Campbell family. I am so sorry to have read of the death of Sarah. Please accept my sincere condolences. I would like to share something that I have personally found to be comforting. It is found in the Bible at John 5:28, 29 and Revelation 21:4. May God give you and your family comfort in His promise that soon we will never experience losing our loved ones in death and we will be able to see them again once they are resurrected. With deepest sympathy and warmth of heart.
