To The Woodruff Family, You have suffered a great loss and Jehovah feels your pain and for that I am truly sorry . Psalms 145: 18,19 says " Jehovah is near to all those calling on him,...

Dear Woodruff 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)~ D Robinson NJ
I am sorry for your loss, please accept my sincere condolences. I hope the family will find some comfort and strength in Jesus promise of the earthly resurrection(Acts 24:15)and the renewed Paradise earth, where death will be no more and no family will mourn the death of a loved one.-Revelation 21:3,4;John 5:28,29;Luke 23:43. may GOD(Psalms 83:18)grant you peace and comfort now, during this grievous time.-Matthew 5:4.~ M Jones New Bern, NC

May "peace from God" ease the pain of your loss. 2 Corinthians 1:2~ A. Ellison Atlanta, GA
My deepest sympathies to the Woodruff family. I'm so sorry for your loss. May "the God of all comfort" give all of you the needed strength to get through each day. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) The Bible tells us that Jesus wept when his dear friend Lazarus died. Yet, just minutes later, Jesus performed an astounding miracle - he raised Lazarus back to life! (John 11:32-44) In doing so, he gave all mankind solid grounds for faith in the amazing promise he had made earlier in his ministry when he said: "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out." (John 5:28,29) What this can mean for you is the real hope of being reunited with your dear loved ones. May the precious promise of the resurrection hope give you a measure of peace. My thoughts and prayers are with you. If you want to know more about the resurrection and what it means for you personally, feel free to visit jw.org.~ Brittany IL

God promises that soon He will remove all causes of pain, suffering, 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.~ L. Brown
May the family be comforted by the beautiful words found at Hosea 13:14 which says: From the power of the grave I (God) will redeem them; From death I will recover them. And the wonderful promise for the future at Isaiah 33:24 which says: And no resident will say: "I am sick". The people dwelling in the land will be pardoned for their error. These scriptures will help you cope with the grief and sadness at this time of bereavement.~ R. Sweatman Decatur, GA

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:
My heart aches for the Woodruff family to lose in death your precious loved one Susie. Words are so limited that can give comfort, so I would like to share with you a beautiful scripture where our heavenly Father, Jehovah (Psalm 83:18) invites you to throw all your burdens on him and he will sustain you in your time of grief. None of us are guaranteed tomorrow, but we are all guaranteed a resurrection.
John 6: 40; "For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who recognizes the Son and exercises faith in him should have everlasting life, and I will resurrect him on the last day".
John 5: 28; "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out..."
John 11:23-25; "Jesus said to her: "I am the resurrection and the life." The one who exercises faith in me, even tho he dies, will come to life.
I pray that Jesus's promise to reunite us with our loved ones on resurrection day will carry you through the difficult days ahead and gradually replace your tears of grief with tears of Joy as you reflect on your precious memories of happier times. The family is in my prayers and I offer my heartfelt condolences. Feel free to me at my email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
