    My sincere sympathies to the Smith family. Very sorry for your loss. Losing a loved one in death is one of the most difficult experiences to endure. Please know that God is eager to do away with death. Jehovah hates death; he views it as an enemy. (1 Corinthians 15:26) He has a longing to conquer that enemy, to undo death by means of the resurrection. He yearns to bring back those who are in his memory, our lived ones who have died, to see them live on earth again. (Job 14:14,15) What this can mean for you is a real hope of being reunited with your dear loved ones.

    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 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.

May Jehovah GOD (Psalms 83:18) grant you peace and comfort during this time of sorrow (Matthew 5:4).

    Dear Smith family: My family would like to extend our deepest sympathy to your family for the loss of Mr. Henry. We're sure he will be truly missed. However, we can look forward to Jesus promise of calling out to the graves to bring back our loved ones to life again (John 5:28,29). For this reason Jesus died so that we may live.

    I would like to express my deepest sympathy to the Family and Friends of Henry James Smith. I am sorry to hear of your loss. The death of a love one is a painful experience. Our Heavenly Father is well aware of the pain and hurt you feel. May you find comfort in knowing that our loving Heavenly Father promises in His Word the Holy Bible to remove pan, suffering, and death (Revelation 21:3,4 and Isaiah 25:8). Until that time, may you find comfort in this promise and treasure the special memories you shared.

    To The Family, Life is such a precious gift from our God Jehovah (Psalms 83:18) and when that life is lost it brings such great sorrow. The Bible promises at Acts 24:14 "...there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and unrighteousness ." The Bible assures use that our love ones will live again when God allows Jesus to call them back to life to live on a paradise earth. Psalms 37:11 says "the meek will possess the earth and they will find exquisite delight in the abundance of peace." The Bible guarantees a bright future for obedient mankind. Please put your hope in Gods promises.

    The Smith family: I am sorry to hear about your loss. 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 Jesus performed an astounding miracle--he raised Lazarus back to life! John11:32-44. In doing so he gave all mankind solid ground for faith in the amazing promise he mad 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 comfort you. Act 14:15. www.jw.org
