2 Corinthians 1:3,4 gives us the assurance that "the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies" is "the God of all comfort" and he "comforts us in all our trials". James 5:11 God "is very tender in affection (very compassionate) and merciful". Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! (Psalm 36:7; 1 Peter 5:7)

I'm so sorry for your family's loss. I personally know the loss of both a mother and grandmother, and the pain can seem overwhelming. However I found comfort in the Bible's promise for the future found at Acts 24:15. I hope this helps bring some comfort in this time of sorrow.
