    With reference to the death notice of Mrs Merlina Adora Estwick in the Sunday Sun dated 17 February 2019, I wish to offer my deepest sympathy.

    Few things cause more stress or heartache than the death of a mate, parent, sibling, relative, or dear friend.

    A strong belief in a loving God brings comfort, The Bible says at Psalm 34:15 “ Jehovah listens to their cry for help.”

    Expressing our feelings in prayer to God is more than good therapy or a means of organizing our thoughts. It actually helps to establish a personal relationship with the Creator, who can use his power to comfort us.

    I sincerely hope that this brief note will be of some practical help during the grieving process.

    K Janette
