    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 condolences go out to the family. As you prepare to lay your loved one to rest, may you find comfort from your Bibles at Psalms 34:18. “ HE” is close to the brokenhearted and crushed in spirit. Nahum 1:7 tells us Jehovah is good, a stronghold in the day of distress. He is mindful of those seeking refuge in him.
