    I am sad to hear about this tragedy. Indeed, Christine was a blessing for those who knew her. I am sure that God cares for all his creatures and he would never bring us suffering. A soothing scripture I like is Psalm 34:18 “Jehovah is near to those that are broken at heart, and those who are crushed in spirit he saves.” He promised that in the Paradise, we will have the prospect of enjoying life without end, free from all problems, accidents, and sickness. Even our dead loved ones will be resurrected. (Psalm 37:9, 29) Thus, while you await the Paradise where peace and happiness will flourish; where no one will be sick and die; may you lean on God to give you the strength you need in the days ahead.
