We should not sorrow as those who have no hope, nor fail to mourn as those who do not love. The blessing for those who mourn is comfort. Comfort is a divine gift from God intended to be delivered by family, friends, and community during a time of mourning. Comfort when it is full grown becomes a living hope.
