    Marilyn and Charles Lane,
    The death of a child is one of the greatest tragedies that a family can face. Our Heavenly Father (Psalm83:18) promises to wipe away the tears of sorrow that such terrible losses cause. (Revelation 21:1-4) Even now, God provides comfort for the bereaved.—Psalm 147:3.
