    I am sorry for your loss, please accept my sincere condolences. I hope the family will find some comfort and strength in Jesus promise of the earthly resurrection(Acts 24:15)and the renewed Paradise earth, where death will be no more and no family will mourn the death of a loved one.-Revelation 21:3,4;John 5:28,29;Luke 23:43. may GOD(Psalms 83:18)grant you peace and comfort now, during this grievous time.-Matthew 5:4.

    To The Family, I want to express my deepest sympathy for your loss. I also want to share the comfort of John 5:28,29 where we are promised that those who have fallen asleep in death have the hope of receiving a "resurrection" back to life. Life on an earth restored to a beautiful paradise. Psalms 37:11 says, "The meek will possess the earth, and they will find exquisite delight in the abundance of peace." While we await that wonderful time please find comfort in these promises.

    I wanted to express my sympathies to the Roorbach family. I'm so sorry for your loss. During difficult times like this, we all need comfort. That comfort can come from the Bible, through prayer, from family and friends. But the ultimate source of comfort comes from Almighty God, Jehovah. 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 speaks, in part, of "the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God."

    To the Roorback family: I'm so sorry to hear of the passing of your beloved John. May you all take comfort and find strength in God word found at Job 14:13-15. You all have my deepest sympathy in this most difficult time.

    Dear Family and Friends, Please accept my sincere condolences on the loss of your precious loved one. I pray you will all find comfort and strength in Jesus’ promise of an earthly resurrection (Acts 24:15) and a renewed Paradise on earth, where “death will be no more” (Rev 21:3,4; John 5:28,29; Luke 23:43). May Jehovah GOD (Psalms 83:18) grant you peace and comfort during this time of sorrow (Matthew 5:4).

    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.

    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)

    My condolences to the family. May you find comfort in knowing that death is to be brought to nothing: 1Co 15:26 and Rev 21:4. Jesus gave solid ground for faith in the resurrection when he raised his dear friend Lazarus back to life. John 11:32-44. John 3:16 tells us we can have life everlasting.

    My condolences to the family at this time. Because of our first parents' willful disobedience, all mankind has inherited sin and eventually death (Romans 5:12), because of Jehovah God's great love, he will eleminate the enemy death forever (Isaiah 25:8), and ressurect loved ones back to life on a beautiful and peaceful paradise Earth (Psalms 37:29). May these loving promises bring you much comfort at this time. Sincerely, Amy Edwards
