No one is ever prepared to lose a loved one in death. We can find true hope and comfort in Gods word the Bible at 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 where it says God is the God of all comfort and tender mercy. I truly hope you find that comfort during this time.
To The Family of Donald Rider, I am so sorry for your loss, please accept my condolence. I know words can never really take away the pain, the grief that you are feeling at this time. But please remember that our Heavenly Father Jehovah feel your pain. He promise soon to remove death forever. This promise can be found at Isaiah 25:8 which states "He(Jehovah) will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces." A promise only He can and will keep in the near future. Again I want to say I'm sorry for your loss.
