May you find comfort and strength in knowing that God loves you and he cares for you, through talking to God in prayer, and from God's Word, the Bible. Psalm 36:7 says: "How precious your loyal love is, O God! In the shadow of your wings, the sons of men take refuge". 1 Peter 5:7 "Throw all your anxiety, (cares, worries) on him, because he cares for you". Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! (Isaiah 41:10; Isaiah 40:31) jw.org
