    I'm truly sorry for your loss of your loved one. Often times we can't find the right words to express how we feel only tears. Know that they don't go unnoticed. God (Psalm 83:18) sees your sadness and he promises to wipe out every tear from our eyes and death will be no more, Revelation 21:4

    Dear Price family, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Please accept my sincere sympathies. The death of a loved one is such a challenging time for the entire family. I hope that you can find some comfort in God's Word the Bible. Acts 24:15 says, "I have hope toward God...that there is going to be a resurrection..." Here the Bible is assuring us that in the near future we have the hope of being reunited with our loved ones we have lost in death. May this promise be a comfort to you during this difficult time. If you want to know more, feel free to go to jw.org.

    Hello, I'm so sorry about the lost of ur dear loved one. I knw Bennie will be missed by you. The "God of comfort " you can turn to if you need strength to endure through this tough time. Psalms 55:22 encourages us to "Throw your burden on Jehovah." When I feel down and discouraged about something, I sometimes remember and think of that scripture. Surely, it's challenging now to cope with the death of Bennie, but there is the hope of you seeing Bennie again! That promise is found at John 5:28,29. We learn at this scripture that the dead will live again!! That is comforting to know!! Again, I'm sorry for your lost of Bennie. Take care.

    With heartfelt sympathy for your loss. May you find comfort in God's Word of promise, the bible, as God promises to restore life to those lost in death. He did not purpose man to die but rather to live forever. Please be assured that God, who cannot lie, will fulfill his promises. You can see your loved one again where he will have the prospect of living forever in perfect health. (Acts 24:15) To learn more visit www.jw.org

    My heart aches for the Price family to lose in death your precious loved one Mr. Bennie. Words are so limited that can give comfort, so I would like to share with you beautiful scripture where our heavenly Father, Jehovah God (Psalm 83:18) invites you to throw all your burdens on him and he will sustain you in your time of grief. Psalm 34:18 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. Our savior, Jesus, said: John 6: 40; "For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who recognizes the Son and exercises faith in him should have everlasting life, and I will resurrect him on the last day". Jesus also said: John 5: 28; "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out..." John 11:23-25; "Jesus said to her: "I am the resurrection and the life." The one who exercises faith in me, even tho he dies, will come to life." Acts 24:15 tells us: "And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of the righteous and the unrighteous." Hebrews 2:14b enlightens us: "so that through his (Jesus) death, he (Jesus) might bring to nothing the one having the means to cause death, that is, the Devil." I pray that Jesus's promise to reunite us with our loved ones on resurrection day will carry you through the difficult days ahead and gradually replace your tears of grief with tears of joy as you reflect on your precious memories of happier times with Mr. Bennie. 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. John 17:3 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 or watch this faith strengthening video: "Can The Dead Really Live Again?" https://vimeo.com/232445509 The family is in my prayers and I offer my heartfelt condolences.

    I am truly sorry for your loss. However, John 5:25 says “the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who have paid attention will live”. Those who have died and are in God’s memory will be resurrected to a restored earth and have a hope of everlasting life. (Psalm 37:11, 29) I hope this brings you peace.
