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:

Until that time, may you find comfort in this promise and treasure the special memories you shared.~ L. Brown

To The Family,
I am sorry to hear of your loss. The death of a loved one is a difficult time for the entire family.
It is my wish that you can find comfort in God's Word the Bible. The Bible says at Ezekiel 18:32 " ' I do not take pleasure in the death of anyone', declares the Sovereign Lord Jehovah. ’So turn back and live.'” In this verse the Bible is assuring all mankind that the True God is not the cause of death and that it is something he dislikes.
I hope that you can find some relief and solace in this verse and other scriptures during challenging time~ T. Brown
We were saddened to hear of the loss of Andrew. We will keep the family in our prayers, during your bereavement. Elvira Daniel and family
My sincerest condolences to the friends and family of Mr. Spear's. During this difficult time, you can pour out your heart to the "God of all comfort" for help. 2 Corinthians 1:3,4.~ A Taylor Decatur, GA
I want to express my sincerest sympathy to Delois and the Spear family and friends because of losing Andrew recently in death. When our loved ones fall asleep in death, the pain and grief seems unbearable. Our loving God Jehovah (Psalm 83:18) understands how we feel and he comforts us by means of his word the Bible. Psalm 34: 18 tells us: "Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit." Jehovah 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 5:28, John 6:40 and 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."
