To the family and friends of Mrs Florence. I'm so very sorry for your loss. She seemed like such a lovely person...Jehovah God knows our heart can be “broken and crushed by such a lost. (Ps. 51:17) He certainly wants to help us deal with this situation, for “he is healing the brokenhearted ones, and is binding up their painful spots.” (Ps. 147:3) Even in severe situations, God can bring relief to a stricken heart.
The Bible speaks of a promise at Rev 21:3-4 of a time when there will be no more tears, or pain or even mourning because death will be done away with. I look forward to this. You can too. You can learn more about this hope at jw.org.
Again, I am so very sorry for your loss,

My dear Aunt Florence what a precious person you have been to Steve and I. Your "spit and vinegar" I admired as you lived many years alone. I will remember your kind heart and independence. May your days with the Lord and your Kenny be happy forever and forever. All my love . Luci

My condolences for the loss of your dear loved one. In this time of grief, the Bible assures us: 'Almighty God is near to those that are broken at heart; and those who are crushed in spirit he saves.' (Psalm 34:18) Yes, more than anything else, your relationship with God can truly help in coping during this time of grief.
