    I am sorry for your loss. Death is always a painful event for us all. However Jehovah offers us comfort in the Bible at Isaiah 25:8. I always find this scripture to be of encouragement. Jehovah promises to do away with death and all things that bring us pain. How satisfying that will be. May joyful memories fill your minds and hearts through this difficult time.

    My condolences in the loss of your beloved family member. The sting of death hurts so much. Our heavenly father Jehovah is always there to comfort us during this difficult time. Psalm 94:19 says; "When anxieties overwhelmed me. You comforted and soothed me". Also Psalm 34:18 reminds us that "Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit". May these scriptures comfort you at this time of bereavement.

    I am truly sorry for the loss and pain that the McNeil family and friends are feeling because of losing Ms. Ruthie recently in death. Most of us have had to endure the sorrow of losing a loved one in death. What helped me the most was prayer and faith in our loving heavenly Father, Jehovah God's (Psalm 83:18) promises like found here at 1 Corinthians 15: 26 and it tells us: "And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing." Jehovah promises us that he is going to do away with man's greatest enemy, death. Rev. 21: 4; "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. Isaiah 33:24 guarantees us: "And no resident will say "I am sick," ever again. God's kingdom that Jesus taught us to pray for at Matt. 6: 9, 10 will bring about these wonderful promises here on earth (Psalm 37:9-11, 29), including the resurrection. None of us are guaranteed tomorrow, but we are all guaranteed a resurrection. (John 5:28, John 6:40, John 11:23-25, Acts 24:15) Also, Titus 1: 2 tells us this promise of a resurrection: "is based on a hope of the everlasting life that God, who cannot lie, promised long ago." Isaiah 26:19 "Your dead will live......And the earth will let those powerless in death come to life." Isaiah 25:8 "He will swallow up death forever. For Jehovah himself has spoken it."For more comforting scriptures please visit: http://bit.ly/1K38EFt. It has given me hope, strengthened my faith and helped me find the answer to Why? I know it will do the same for you. Jehovah invites you to throw all your burdens on him and he will sustain you in your time of grief. Psalm 34:18 Again, the family is in my prayers and I offer my heartfelt condolences. Feel free to contact me if you wish at my email address; myranj@centurytel.net I pray it will bring you comfort to please watch this beautiful video (song 144) entitled "Keep Your Eyes on the Prize" https://tv.jw.org/#en/video/VODChildren/pub-pksn_24_VIDEO

    To The Family, God never intended for man to suffer the pain of death. 1 Corinthians 15:26 says, "And the last enemy, death is to be brought to nothing." Almighty God is going to remove death forever. What a wonderful future hope. Take comfort in knowing this. Please look forward to the fulfillment of Revelation 21:3,4. Please be assured Jehovah (Psalms 83:18) will comfort you during this most difficult time.

    I am very sorry for your loss. May you take comfort in knowing that Ruthie is only asleep in death and that soon Jesus will awaken her. (John 11:11-14) In God’s new Kingdom for which we pray, we will never have to mourn the loss of our loved ones again. (Matt. 6:10; Psalm 37:11, 29; Rev. 21:4) I hope this brings you peace.

    Dear McNeil family, I am sorry to learn that you have lost a dear loved one in death. That lost can cause us to become overwhelmed by grief. The Bible tells us that Jesus wept when his friend Lazarus died. Yet, just minutes later Jesus performed an astounding miracle when he raised Lazarus back to life! (John 11:32-44) In doing so he gave all mankind the solid grounds for faith in the amazing promise he had 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 and being reunited with your dear loved ones comfort your family.
