    Please except my condolences during this period of distress. While it is indeed sad that you are mourning the loss of your dear Leroy, it saddens God more. In the days ahead, you will reflect on seemingly small, yet precious memories. This is occurs especially when we experience the loss of someone loved. However, take confidence in knowing that just as you have memories, almighty God remembers too. The difference is, God can and will restore perfect life to those in His memory as expressed in the faith strengthening video ** vimeo.com/204649761

    To The Family of Mr. Leroy, I am sorry to read of the death of your love One. Sadly death is a part of all our lives, no matter who we are all of mankind has felt the pain of death, Romans 5 : 12. However the Bible says, " that death will one day end, " Isaiah 25 : 8. Then John 5 : 28, 29 and Revelation 21 : 4 will become a reality for all obedient mankind. They will come back by means of the resurrection, and have the opportunity to live forever on a paradise Earth, Psalm 37 : 11, 29 and Luke 23 : 43. Very soon these scriptures will be fulfilled. For more comforting scriptures on the resurrection, please visit our website at www.jw.org.

    Dear Platt family, please accept my deepest sympathies. am very sorry for your loss. Losing a loved one in death can leave us with feelings of sorrow and grief. But there is a beautiful hope we can look forward to. Isaiah 25:8 says, "He will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces." So not only will Almighty God eliminate death, but he will remove the feelings of sadness that come from losing someone we love, and replace those feelings with comfort and hope.

    I am truly sorry for your loss. However, John 5:25 says “the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who have paid attention will live”. Those who have died and are in God’s memory will be resurrected to a restored earth and have a hope of everlasting life. (Psalm 37:11, 29) I hope this brings you peace.

    To the Platt family; I am sorry to hear about your loss. Please accept my condolence. When we lose a loved one in death, we may become overwhelmed by grief. The Bible tells us that Jesus wept when his dear friend Lazarus died. Yet, just minutes later Jesus preformed an astounding miracle--he raised Lazarus back to life! John 11:32-44. In doing so he gave all mankind solid ground for faith in the amazing promise he made earlier in his ministry, when he said: "The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out." [John 5:28,29]. May the hope of a resurrection to life on a paradise earth be a comfort to you, Acts 24:15 www.jw.org

    To The Family, At Job 14:14, Job asked the question, "If a man dies, can he live again?..." He answers that question in verse 15, "You (Jehovah) will call and I will answer you." Job had confidence in the resurrection hope and we can too (John 5: 28,29). Jesus is the resurrection and the life. Jesus brings this point out at John 11:25. We can be thankful that Almighty God has given Jesus the authority to bring our dear loved ones back from the grave. Please allow the resurrection hope to comfort you.

    None of us are guaranteed tomorrow but we are all guaranteed a resurrection (john 5:28. John 6:40 and John 11:25). Jesus is the resurrection and the life. God has provided Jesus' ransom sacrifice so that by our faith in it we might have hope. My condolence on the death of your dear loved one.
