    To The Family, Almighty God created us to live, not to die. Ecclesiastes 3:11 says, "He has put eternity in their(our) heart." We die because we are imperfect, but God promises a resurrection of our dear loved ones. Revelation 21:4 says, "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. The former things have passed away." May this scripture comfort you.

    I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your loved one. Please I hope you find comfort in the words found at Isaiah 25:8 - He will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces.” May this video of the hope of the resurrection, seeing your loved one right here on earth again, bring you some comfort:

    Please accept my condolences during this time of distress. While it is indeed sad that you are mourning the loss of your dear Rufus, it saddens God more. In the days ahead, you will continue to reflect on seemingly small, yet precious memories. This happens when we experience the loss of someone loved. However, take comfort in knowing that just as you have memories, almighty God remembers too. The difference is, God can and will restore perfect life to those in His memory as explained in the faith strengthening video *

    My deepest sympathies to the Lawson family. I know that your family is experiencing the loss of a dear loved one, so no doubt, this is a very painful time. Please rest assured that our loving God, Jehovah is certainly aware of how you're feeling. In His Word, the Bible, he promises to raise up the dead through the beautiful hope of a resurrection. (Acts 14:15) May "the God of comfort" give you the strength to get through the days ahead. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4)

    My condolences to the Corea family and friends. May it comfort you to know that Jesus liken death to sleep (John 11-14) (1 Cor. 15:6) (Acts 7:60). A long time ago, a servant of God named Job asked: “If a man dies, can he live again?” (Job 14:14) Job had faith in Jehovah GOD's (Psalm 83:18) power to resurrect him back to life. Job was confident that Jehovah would miss him and would long to restore him to life (Job 14:13,15). Job and countless others who are resurrected have the prospect of regaining "his youthful vigor" and his flesh will forever remain "fresher than in youth"(Job 33:24,25) We can appreciate God's wonderful, merciful provision of a resurrection to life on earth.
