    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.

    Mitchell Family, I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your loved one. 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: http://tv.jw.org/#en/video/VODProgramsEvents/pub-jwbcov_201405_5_VIDEO

    To The Mitchell Family It is comforting to know that Jehovah, the God of all comfort, will completely remove all grief at the time of the resurrection.(John 5:28,29) God promises that "he will do away with death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces."(Isaiah 25:8) Then, instead of having to "weep with those who weep," everyone on earth will "rejoice with those who rejoice. Romans 12:15.

    To the Mitchell family, my thoughts and prayers go out to you. I am so sorry for your loss. The loss of a loved one brings us feelings of anguish and grief, but you can find comfort and hope in God’s word, the Bible. John 5:28, 29 says, "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." What this can mean for you is a real hope of being reunited with your dear loved ones in a Paradise on earth where "death is no more." (Revelation 21:3, 4)

    To The Family, You have suffered a great loss and Jehovah feels your pain and for that I am truly sorry . Psalms 145: 18,19 says " Jehovah is near to all those calling on him,... " Verse 19 says " He hears their cry for help and he rescues them." Almighty God will help you through your pain as he has helped me with my losses. Please rely on his tender care.

    To the family and friends of Valerie Mitchell: At this time I know much pain you are feeling because of the lost of Valerie, but like a physical wound, the pain of an emotional wound may gradually ease over time if it is given tender care. The best medicine to heal this wound is turning to Jehovah for comfort. (2 Cor. 1:3,4.) Along with that, is taking daily vitamins. One vitamin is praying. Jehovah encourages us to draw close to him. (James 4:8.) Along with prayer, we should throw our burdens and pain to him. (Ps. 55:22.) The Greatest healing is found at John 5:28,29. We learn that the dead will be resurrected back to life. Soon you will see Valerie again and she will be in perfect health! Until then I'm sorry for your lost. Please take care and may Jehovah be with you.

    My heart aches for the Mitchell family to lose in death your precious loved one Ms. Valerie. 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 Ms. Valerie. 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 Devil 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.

    Please except my condolences for your loss. We have hope of see our love one again. John 5:28,29 says there will be a resurrection of most people who have died. Jesus promised that “those in the memorial tombs will come out.” In harmony with God’s original purpose, those resurrected as humans will have the opportunity to live on a paradise earth.
