I am a proud Harry Potter nerd, and so when asked what quote has been particularly meaningful or comforting I think my answer has to be his, said to Harry by his Godfather Sirius Black…
The Harry Potter series is so rich in the theme of grief, especially the grief of children, and indeed the chapter after (*Spoiler alert*) Sirius himself has died is often one I use as an example for people of what it is like to be a child grieving.
A scripture that I have found comforting, is simply John 11:35- the shortest verse in the bible- Jesus wept. Knowing that at the death if his friend Lazarus that Jesus grieves and weeps with his sisters, is so meaningful. It is comforting, in one’s grief, to know that we have a saviour who knows what it is to grieve.
