    To The Family, May you have peace and comfort during this most grievous time. The Bible speaks of death as an enemy. 1 Corinthians 15:26 refers to death as the, "last enemy." Almighty God is going to eliminate this enemy in the future. That same scripture says, it is going to be destroyed forever .What a wonderful future blessing when death is going forever. May you continue to have peace and comfort during this most difficult time.

    You have my deepest condolences. May the love of family, friends, and Almighty God comfort you during your time of grief and afterward. (Ps. 83:18; Isa. 41:10) May the hope of a resurrection on a restored earth bring you peace. (Acts 24:15; Psalm 37:11, 29)

    When we suffer the loss of a love one it can be devastating however it should be comforting to know that God desires all of us to live forever as noted at John 6:40 “This is the will of my Father, that everyone who recognizes the Son and exercises faith in him should have everlasting life.” We should take solace in the fact that one day Death will be no more. As stated here at Revelations 21:4 “He will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more.” www.jw.org
