    To the family of Thelma Riley Richardson, I am very sorry to learn of the passing of our dear sister. She will be truly missed by all those who knew and loved her. At a time like this, we may begin to wonder if Jehovah really cares about the pain we feel in our hearts when we lose someone we love. Thankfully, the Bible reveals his tender regard at 1 at Peter 5:7 where it tells us to throw all our anxiety on him because he cares for you. Not only that, but he has promised to "swallow up death forever" (Isaiah 25:8 NWT), and that he will resurrect our dear loved ones who have passed away. John 5:28.
