    I'm so very sorry for your loss. Lisa was such a sweet and loving person all the time. Each time I would see her she always had that pretty smile. She was the same Lisa all the time. The bible can be a real source of comfort during times such as these. Revelation 21:3,4 says that Jehovah will wipe the tears from our eyes and death and pain will be no more. Lisa will definitely be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Dear Troy and family... I am so very sorry to learn about your loss of Lisa. Fortunately, death is only a temporary part of life. Jesus promised us a wonderful resurrection of the dead (John 5:28,29/1 Thessalonians 4:13, 14), so we have the hope of being reunited with our deceased loved ones. In the meantime, even though the pain of loss through death may sometimes seem insurmountable, rest assured that God will give you the strength necessary to endure the coming months (Psalm 46:1). Please accept my deepest sympathy and sincere condolences and please do feel free to contact me. JW.org
