God the Father suffered loss.
God the Son suffered physical and emotional pain.
God the Spirit actively suffers.
There is plenty within scripture to suggest that God suffers. When we see the lowest of the low, the least in every way within society, there is Jesus, suffering along with them. When the Church suffers in some way God suffers. In the garden of Gethsemane we see a suffering God.
Only a God who suffers with us actively is a God who can truly save us.
