    Please accept my condolences during this time of distress. While it is indeed sad that you are mourning the loss of your dear Frances, it saddens God more. In the days ahead, you will reflect on her 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/203513162

    I want to express my sympathies to the Fortson family. I'm so sorry for your loss. I hope that you find comfort in knowing that one day you'll have the hope of seeing your loved ones again. Acts 24:15 says that "there is going to be a resurrection." What this can mean for you is a real hope of being reunited with your dear loved ones. During difficult times like this, we need comfort, and Almighty God is the source of that comfort. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) May you find strength in knowing that death is not the end, but that there is a beautiful hope of seeing our loved ones again at a time when "death will be no more." (Revelation 21:4)

    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.

    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 Forston family : May you find comfort in Jesus's promise of the resurrection for all. John 5:28,29. His demonstration of the resurrection when he raised Lazarus back to life [John 11:32-44] gives us solid ground to put faith in this promise. www.jw.org
