    I would like to express deepest sympathy to the family. I am sorry for your loss. the death of a love one is a painful experience. Our Heavenly Father is well aware of the hurt you feel. He promises in His Word the Holy Bible to remove pain, suffering,and death (Isaiah 25:8 and Revelation 21:3,4). We know that Almighty Jehovah God has not only the power but also yearns to fulfill this promise. Until that time, may you find comfort in this promise and treasure the special memories you shared.

    My sincere condolences to the Sawyer family: I am so 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 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 precious hope of a resurrection to life on a paradise earth comfort you. Acts 24:15 www,jw.org

    My sympathies to the Sawyer family. I am sorry to hear of your loss. The death of a loved one is a challenging time for the entire family. I hope that you can find some comfort in God's Word, the Bible. Acts 24:15 says, "I have hope toward God... that there is going to be a resurrection..." Here the Bible is assuring us that in the near future we have the hope of being reunited with our loved ones we have loss in death. May this promise be a comfort to you during this difficult time. If you want to know more, feel free to view this article entitled: "Real Hope for Your Loved Ones Who Have Died." https://www.jw.org/en/publications/books/bible-teach/hope-resurrection-of-dead-loved-ones/

    To The Family, I am truly sorry to hear of your loss. The death of a loved one can be very difficult for the entire family. It is my hope that you can find comfort and solace in God's Word the Bible. The scripture at Isaiah 25:8 says, "He {God} will swallow up death forever..." So, the Bible offers a promise of a wonderful future in which mankind will no longer be concerned with death. The Bible also gives us hope of a time when we will see our loved ones we have loss to that enemy death. At John 5:28, 29, Jesus said, "...the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out..." It is my wish that these words and other scriptures help you cope during this time of sorrow.
