    To The Family, You have my deepest sympathy on the loss of your dear beloved family member. Jehovah God knew that death would cause much suffering, therefore he provided a ransom in Jesus so that we may have an opportunity to live in the future without the threat of dying. Jesus said, "I am the resurrection and the life," at John 11:25. He will resurrect obedient mankind to a beautiful paradise home. Take comfort in this guarantee.

    My condolences in the loss of your beloved family member. May you be comforted by the words found at Psalm 34:18; Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit. Also Hosea 13:14 expresses a wonderful hope for the future, it says: From the power of the grave I (God) will redeem them; From death I will recover them. May these scriptures help you to cope with the grief and sadness now and in the days ahead.
