    To the Thomas Family I am so very sorry for the lost of your family. I was not God's purpose for mankind to die. But our loving God Jehovah has promise to do away with death as the Bible Book of Revelation 21:3 and 4 brings out that death will be no more. That means comfort for us. Jesus said not to be amazed at this because the hour is coming in which all in the memorial will here his voice and come out.John 5:28, 29. So very soon we will be reunited with our love one who has died, Psalm 37:29

    With deepest sympathy to the Jones 's family and friends of your loss .God promise that no resident will be sick nor dying. Those promises are true because Titus 1:2 says: it's impossible for God to lie.

    Accept our sincere condolences. May you find some comfort in 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, we can ask for help and rely on God. 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). Be confident that this is SURE to happen because Isaiah 55:11 ensures us of this. Find out more online at JW.ORG
