    Accept my sincere condolences. May you find some comfort in the words of 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4 which reads: "3 Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our trials" Yes, we can ask for help and rely on God. He also has made the sure promise of a resurrection right here on earth when it is restored to a beautiful paradise. (Acts 24:15; Psalms 37:9-11, 29). Be confident that this is SURE to happen because Isaiah 55:11 ensures us if this. Find out more online at JW.ORG

    I'm very sorry for your loss. The scripture at John 5:28,29 says that God is going to bring back to life all those in the memorial tombs. This scripture has given me comfort and I pray you receive comfort from it also. Please accept my sincere condolences.

    you through your grief and heartache. Sometimes when we are consumed by what we are dealing with, it is difficult to quiet the mind enough to allow yourself to hear God's words. Remember that His love for us is so great - greater than that we have even for our own children, that He will comfort you and give you strength to get through the day. "But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk and not faint." Isaiah 40:31 our deepest condolence to the family

    I'm not on an ego trip, I'm nothing on my own I've made mistakes, I often slip, just common flesh and bone But I'll prove someday just why I say, I'm of a special kind For when He was on the cross, I was on His mind. A look of love was on His face, the thorns were on His head The blood was on that scarlet robe, til it stained crimson red Though His eyes were on the crowd that day, He looked ahead in time When He was on the cross, I was on His mind. He knew me, yet He loved me! He whose glory makes the heavens shine. So unworthy of such mercy For when He was on the cross, I was on His min

    To The Grieving Family of Ms. Gerlene Brunson Graves..... A message of Solace at The Time of Your Lost of a Loved One………… Many Wonder: Is There Any Hope for the Dead? WHY THE QUESTION ARISES: We want to live, and we want to enjoy life with those we love. It is only natural that we yearn to see our dead loved ones again. WHAT THE BIBLE TEACHES: Most people who have died will be resurrected. Jesus promised that “those in the memorial tombs will . . . come out.” (John 5:28, 29) In harmony with God’s original purpose, those resurrected as humans will have the opportunity to live on a paradise earth. (Luke 23:43) This promised future includes perfect health and everlasting life for obedient humans. The Bible says: “The righteous will possess the earth, and they will live forever on it.”—Psalm 37:29. Isn’t this wonderful news! To think, our lost loved ones will have an opportunity for ”Eternal Life” on Paradise Earth at this Resurrection. It is my sincere hope that these words/this knowledge helps to sustain you, your family during your Bereavement… See also Job 14:14, 15; Luke 7:11-17; and Acts 24:15.
