    I'm sorry to hear that you are grieving the loss of a dear loved one. May you find comfort in the words of: "Nahum 1:7  which reads: "Jehovah is good, a stronghold in the day of distress. He is mindful of those seeking refuge in him." Yes, our Loving God gives us comfort if we allow him. 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). This is not just a mere dream, but is a certainty because Issues 55:11 tells us that everything God says he accomplishes without fail (Isaiah 55:11). What Joy it will be to welcome back to life our loved ones! Find out more about this resurrection online at JW.ORG

    Luke was like a daddy to me. He kept a picture of me on his TV for years and told everyone I was like his daughter. I love you Luke, see you again someday.
