    I would like to express my condolences to the family of Mr.Goettsch . When we lose someone close to us it can be difficult to cope with but with encouraging family and friends and the Bible we can make it. The Bible states at 2Cor. 1: 3,4 “Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort,  4 who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God”
    I hope these scriptures bring comfort to your family as well. Psalm 55:22, Job 14:13-15, and John 5:28,29
    This may not take away your grief completely but meditating on God’s promises found in the Bible can help you to find the hope and strength to keep going.
