    To the family my deepest condolences for the loss of Mrs. Burton. Do not let your hearts be troubled, exercise faith in God, exercise faith in me (John 14: 1). That faith can be exercised in the resurrection hope Jesus says at John 5: 28, 29 when those in the memorial tomb will hear my voice and come out. There is going to be a resurrection (Acts 24: 15). Then we can enjoy our loved ones again on a paradise restored earth (Psalms 37: 11). JW.org
