My sincere condolences to the family. The death of a loved one is very difficult. Our loving heavenly father wants all to look to him for comfort. Psalm 34:18 says; Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit. Also Isaiah 41:10; Do not be afraid, for I am with you. Do not be anxious, for I am your God. I will fortify you, yes, I will help you. I will really hold on to you with my right hand of righteousness. So rely on Jehovah God to help you through this sad time.~ R. Sweatman Decatur, GA

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
I would like to offer my condolences to the family of Mr. Anthony and may God be a refuge and strength in your time of sorrow,(Psalms 46:1)~ P. Watts GA
To the family and friends of EmmaLee Anthony: I would like to express my deepest sympathy. I am so 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 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
Dear Anthony family, I wanted to send you my deepest sympathies. So sorry for your loss. I can sympathize with the hurt and emptiness of heart you are feeling. Death has been an enemy to each of us, taking those we love so dearly. Soon there will be no more pain, illnesses, or death to cause so much grief, for the Bibles' promises are so fulfilling and gives us a beautiful hope for the future. 1 Peter 5:7 assures us that "Almighty God cares for us." So soon He will undo the effects of suffering, sickness, mourning, wickedness, and will "swallow up death forever." (Isaiah 25:8;Revelation 21:4)~ Brittany IL
