    When we lose someone in death, it seems our world is sent in spirals. The pain, the grief, and the feelings of helplessness can seem unbearable. At such times, we need to go to God's Word for comfort. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) The Bible helps us to understand how Jehovah and Jesus feel about death. It also shows that Jehovah really will defeat our enemy death, and it will be gone forever! (Isaiah 25:8) I hope you find comfort in the Bible.

    Please accept my sincere condolences for the loss of your dear, loved one. Death is hard to deal with. Even Jesus gave way to tears when Lazarus died (John 11:35). But our Heavenly Father views death as an enemy and promises to put an end to it (1 Cor 15:26). We can look forward to being reunited with our loved ones again.
