    To The 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,... " Verse 19 says " He hears their cry for help and he rescues them." Almighty God will help you through your pain as he has helped me with my losses. Please rely on his tender care

    To the family and friends of Mr. Robert Best, I would like to express my sincere condolences and send my Christian love along with some words of encouragement. The Bible reports many instances of humans young, old,male and female who was brought back to life on earth. God hates death He views it as an enemy.(1 Cor.15:26) He has a yearning to conquer that enemy, to undo death by means of a resurrection. He longs to bring back those who are in his memory and to see them live on earth again. (Job 14:14,15 please read)

    I wanted to send my love and condolences to the Best family. I am so sorry for your loss. At times like this we need comfort. God's Word can provide that comfort for it speaks of a beautiful hope for the future. John 5:28,29 says, "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." What this can mean for you is a real hope of being reunited with your dear loved ones. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

    To the friends and family of Mr. Best: You all have my sympathy. The death of a loved one causes us deep pain. At Jeremiah 31:13, God has promised, "I will change their mourning into exultation. I will comfort them and give them joy instead of their grief." We can look forward to the fulfillment of that promise. Until then, turn to "the God of tender mercies and the God of all comfort" in prayer. 2 Corinthians 1:3

    Please accept this message of condolence to your family. The grief of the lost of a love one in death can be overwhelming. The Bible tells us that even Jesus gave way to tears when he learned of the death of his dear friend Lazarus. However, just minutes later he preformed an astounding miracle when he raised Lazarus back to life! In doing this he gave all mankind the solid grounds for faith in the amazing promise he had made earlier in his ministry when he said: "The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out" [John 5:28, 29]. May that precious hope of a resurrection to life on a paradise earth strengthen and comfort you and your family always.

    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.
