The only thing I can say that can express my thoughts on your loss is the promise from God. I too with his sibling have loss a brother. My parents have buried a son. But I take refuge in God's word. This is what the LORD says:

“Restrain your voice from weeping
and your eyes from tears,
for your work will be rewarded,”
declares the LORD.
“They will return from the land of the enemy." - Remember Jesus said the last enemy was death.

Pastor Gary, Lady Venus and Poo-Bear:

Words cannot express the pain, but we know that God has everything in control. We know this is an extremely difficult place to be in but we think back on a song that Pastor Gary sings, "Stand" -watch the Lord see you through! We love you and will never stop praying for your strength.

To Venus and Family... In reading this, It help me, so I'm passing it on.

Dear Lord,
Please help me in this time of loss and overwhelming grief. I don't understand why my life is filled with this pain and heartache. But I turn my eyes to you as I seek to find the strength to trust in your faithfulness. I will wait on you and not despair; I will quietly wait for your salvation. My heart is crushed, but I know that you will not abandon me forever. Please show me your compassion, Lord. Help me through the pain so that I will hope in you again. I believe this promise in your Word to send me fresh mercy each day. Though I can't see past today, I trust your great love will never fail me.
Amen.
