    My sincere condolences to the family. May you find strength from 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 our loving God deeply cares about each one of us. He thus has made the SURE promise of a resurrection right here on earth when it is restored to a beautiful paradise (Psalms 37:9-11, 29; John 5:28, 29; Isaiah 55;11). Can you see yourself welcoming back to life your loved ones? What a joy it will bring all of us. Find out more about this resurrection online at JW.ORG
