The passing of a loved one is so hard to deal with. Even with our testimony in Christ, the pain of the loss is enormous.
When my cousin Junior died, I went to a family gathering in the spirit world. I remember the date, 18 June (2012?), because I called my sister and told her about the experience and that is when I was told that he had died. I had gone to a family gathering on the date of his funeral and I did not know that he had died. How odd it that? To go to a family gathering in the spirit world on the date of his funeral. So, I figured that I should call his mother, my aunt, and tell her about what had happened. We visited for about an hour and she shared that she had been worried about his salvation to which I told her not to worry. He was doing well with our other family members. Her son, my cousin, was okay.
Now couple that kind of experience with a non believer and the mountain of pain is off the charts. I feel for Brandon and his sister and hope that they might turn to Christ for comfort.
What can be said at a time like this? I love you. Please know that your mother is with Christ, our Savior. She is foremost in his mind and he loves you. Then let God touch is soul with the truth of the words that was spoken. So much power in the words of Christ and he often speaks through us.
Please be at peace; my prayers are with you.
Lord Jesus is our King; he is our Lord; he is our friend.

"For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures."
EnochWalked: "A power-sharing agreement to end the political stalemate has been widely mooted, in which Lapid would rotate in office with Bennett, 49." So would Bennett celebrate his 50th year in office? Pentecost may be especially interesting this year.

EnochWalked: The political logic seems to be that Lapid should quickly form a coalition which passes a non-controversial budget and also a law banning an indicted person from running for PM (or President), then call a fifth election after the new pres. is in office.

EnochWalked: That link also includes this update: "Israel said upping security readiness ahead of possible Jerusalem tensions. ... [Tomorrow is] the last Friday of ... Ramadan ... Additionally, Monday is Jerusalem Day, a day that usually sees a right-wing march"
