    My sincere condolences to the whole family. May you find strength from the words of Nahum 1:7 Jehovah is good, a stronghold in the day of distress. He is mindful of those seeking refuge in him.What a loving God who cares about each one of us. He didn't intend for us to grow old and die. He thus has made the SURE promise of a resurrection right here on earth when it is restored to a beautiful paradise (Psalms 37:9-11, 29; Acts 24:15; Isaiah 55;11). Can you see yourself welcoming back to life your loved ones? What a joy it will bring all of us. You can go online to JW.ORG and find out more about this resurrection.
