    Dear Rawls Family:Please accept my condolences for the loss of you dear loved one. This is the time of year most of us reflect on Jesus and the outstanding sacrifice he made for all of mankind,he gave his perfect life (ro.8:34). One of the greatest benefits we are privileged to gain from his death is the hope of a resurrection to life here on earth. Jesus performed many miracles to show us that he had both the power and the desire to bring our love ones back. One such miracle that we all know is the resurrection of Lazerus,surely he can raise your love one too (John 5:28,29)

    To the Family and Friends of Jewel Rawls: I would like to express my deepest sympathy. I am sorry to hear of your loss. The death of a love one is a painful experience. Our Heavenly Father is well aware of the hurt you feel. May the God of all comfort provide you with strength in this most difficult time (2 Corinthians 1:3,4). God promises that soon He will remove all causes of suffering, pain, and death (Revelation 21:3,4). We know that Almighty Jehovah God has not only the power but also yearns to fulfill this promise. Until that time, may you find comfort in this promise and treasure the special memories you shared.

    My deepest sympathy in the loss of your beloved family member. Death causes such deep sadness and pain. Our loving heavenly father feels the pain as well. So he offers us words of comfort from his word the Bible to help soothe the pain. Psalm 147:3 says; He (God) heals the brokenhearted; He binds up their wounds. And the wonderful promise for the future at Hosea 13:14 which says: From the power of the grave I (God) will redeem them; From death I will recover them. This promise is a welcome relief from the sting of death!

    I know it's hard losing someone you love in death, but the memories of that love one, will last forever in your heart and mind. May you find comfort in the scripture which speaks of God, being the God of all comfort who never intended for anyone to fall asleep in death. It's also comforting to know that your loved one is also remembered by God, such a wonderful provision. - 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 May this article provide you some comfort: https://www.jw.org/finder?pub=wp16&issue=201609&wtlocale=E&srcid=share

    I am truly sorry for the loss and pain that the Rawls family and friends are feeling because of losing Jewell recently in death. Most of us have had to endure the sorrow of losing a loved one in death. What helped me the most was prayer and faith in God's promises like found here at 1 Corinthians 15: 26 and it tells us: "And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing." God's kingdom that Jesus taught us to pray for at Matt. 6: 9, 10 will bring about these wonderful promises, including the resurrection. None of us are guaranteed tomorrow, but we are all guaranteed a resurrection. (John 5:28, John 6:40, John 11:23-25) Also, Titus 1: 2 tells us this promise of a resurrection: "is based on a hope of the everlasting life that God, who cannot lie, promised long ago." Isaiah 26:19 "Your dead will live......And the earth will let those powerless in death come to life." Isaiah 25:8 "He will swallow up death forever. For Jehovah himself has spoken it."For more comforting scriptures please visit: http://bit.ly/1K38EFt. It has given me hope, strengthened my faith and helped me find the answer to Why? I know it will do the same for you. Jehovah (Psalm 83:18) invites you to throw all your burdens on him and he will sustain you in your time of grief. Again, the family is in my prayers and I offer my heartfelt condolences.

    I am very sorry for your loss. However, Almighty God has provided a guarantee of a resurrection to all people in His memory by resurrecting Jesus from the dead. (Psalm 83:18; Acts 17:31) We will be able to see our loved ones again on a restored earth. (Psalm 37:11, 29) I hope this brings you peace.
