    Sincere condolences for Ruby’s family. I hope you can find comfort in knowing that Jehovah God truly does care about our suffering. A scripture that always helps me when I feel down is found at Isaiah 41:10 ” Do not be afraid, for I am with you. Do not be anxious, for I am your God. I will fortify you, yes, I will help you, I will really hold on to you with my right hand of righteousness.”
