I offer my deepest condolences to the Romero family on the passing of your loved one. Throughout this pain, Jehovah God understands your loss. Isaiah 25:8 says that “He will swallow up death forever, And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces”. Until those promises are fulfilled, I pray that this scripture brings a measure of comfort to the family during their time of bereavement.
