I am so sorry for the loss of dear Jalen. During this most difficult time, please know that many hearts go out to you and that you are invited by our Creator, Jehovah God, to “throw all your anxiety on him, because he cares for you.” (1 Peter 5:7; Psalm 83:18) “Jehovah is close the brokenhearted; he saves those who crushed in spirit.” (Psalm 34:18) Take advantage of this invitation as you await the day “all” in the grave, including Jalen, come out. (John 5:28, 29; 11:11, 43) And then, “the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing.” (1 Corinthians 15:26) Take care dear ones and please accept my sincerest condolences. (www.jw.org)
