    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.

    To The Family, I am sorry to hear of your loss. The death of a loved one is a difficult time for the entire family. It is my wish that you can find comfort in God's Word the Bible. The Bible says at Ezekiel 18:32 " ' I do not take pleasure in the death of anyone', declares the Sovereign Lord Jehovah. ’So turn back and live.'” In this verse the Bible is assuring all mankind that the True God is not the cause of death and that it is something he dislikes. I hope that you can find some relief and solace in this verse and other scriptures during this challenging time.

    Hello I'm writing because I would like to send my condolences for the lost of Emma. I know she was deeply loved by family and friends. Comfort can be given by family and friends, but comfort can also be given even more by Jehovah God. At 2 Cor.1:3 it calls Jehovah the "God of comfort. " From personal experience I can say this is true. In the Bible, Jehovah tells us many promises for the future. One of them is a resurrection of the dead. This promise is found at John 5:28,29. That scripture tells us that there will be a "resurrection of the righteous and unrighteousness." Soon you will be able to see Emma again!! Until then, I'm sorry for for your lost.

    My condolences to the family. At Revelation 21:4 Jehovah God promises to do away with death forever. One day soon we will not have to face nor fear our enemy death anymore. The website jw. org has really helped me through the difficulty of loosing a loved one. May your family find comfort in it as well.

    I wanted to send my love and condolences to the Ross family. I'm very sorry for your loss. Losing a loved one in death is a devastating experience that leaves us with feelings of sorrow and grief. However, know that God is going to replace your sadness with joy, and a hope for the future. How? Isaiah 25:8 says, "He will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe the tears from all faces." So here Jehovah God has promised that He will eliminate death forever, wiping away the tears that come from losing the ones we love. Furthermore, God has given us the hope of the resurrection, which can mean being reunited with our dear loved ones, once again on a Paradise earth. (John 5:28,29; Revelation 21:4)
