    I am sorry for your loss, please accept my sincere condolences. I hope the family will find some comfort and strength in Jesus promise of the earthly resurrection (Acts 24:15) and the renewed Paradise earth, where death will be no more and no family will mourn the death of a loved one as found at Revelation 21:3,4. May God (Psalms 83:18) grant you peace and comfort during this grievous time.

    To The Statham Family Please except these comfortig words It is comforting to know that Jehavoh, 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)

    My condolences to the family in the loss of your dear loved one. There is nothing more painful in life then losing a loved one in death. Our loving God Jehovah understand how you feel because death was never a part of his original purpose for mankind. He gives comfort from his word the Bible to help cope with the loss. Psalm 34:18 says; Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit. Very soon now he will fulfill his promise of no more sickness and death by resurrecting dead loved ones back to life on a paradise earth (John 5:28,29). May these scriptures strengthen and comfort you during this sad time.

God promises that soon He will remove all causes of pain, suffering, and death (Revelation 21:3,4). We know that Almighty Jehovah God has not only the power but also yearns to fulfill this promise. Until that time, may you find comfort in this promise and treasure the special memories you shared.

    My sincere sympathies to the Statham family. I'm very sorry for your loss. My thoughts are with you during this period of mourning. A comforting thought at times like these can soothe the heart. The Bible reveals that it is God’s purpose to restore the dead to life by means of a resurrection to a paradise earth, where sickness and “death will be no more.” (Revelation 21:4) Jesus said: “The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” (John 5:28,29) Imagine seeing your dear loved ones again and being reunited with them. God has promised to make that a reality for his faithful ones.

    Dear Family and Friends, When under trial Jesus was able to endure because of the joyful hope he maintained in Jehovah God's promises (Hebrews 12:2, Psalm 83:18). I pray that you all use God’s Word to embrace that same hope and lasting comfort in this time of great sorrow (John 5:28-29).

    To The Family, At Job 14:14, Job asked the question, "If a man dies, can he live again?..." He answers that question in verse 15, "You (Jehovah) will call and I will answer you." Job had confidence in the resurrection hope and we can too (John 5: 28,29). Jesus is the resurrection and the life. Jesus brings this point out at John 11:25. We can be thankful that Almighty God has given Jesus the authority to bring our dear loved ones back from the grave. Please allow the resurrection hope to comfort you.

    I would like to offer my condolences for your loss. I hope you will find comfort in knowing that Jehovah, the God of all comfort, will soon eliminate all grief and provide permanent consolation when “all those in the memorial tombs will hear [Christ’s] voice and come out”! (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.” (Isa. 25:8) Then, instead of having to “weep with those who weep,” all earth’s inhabitants will “rejoice with those who rejoice.”?—Rom. 12:15.

    My deepest condolences to the Statham family. I have so many good memories of Marvin. When I was a small child Marvin would walk pass my house and he would stop briefly to chat with my brother and I. Even in my child mind I thought wild this guy is older than us and he is nice enough to stop and chat. It's funny how a brief chat could leave such a lasting impression. Marvin you are one of a kind, and you will be missed. You will always hold a special place in my heart.
