    To the family, I am so sorry for the loss of your loved one. During this sad time, may you take comfort in knowing that God does not tempt us with evil things, like death and suffering (James 1:13). On the contrary, he provides true comfort now and hope for the future. He promises to reunite us with our dear loved ones to live under perfect living conditions (John 5:28,29 and Isaiah 65:20-25). In the days to come, may these truths help to sustain your family. For more comforting thoughts, please visit jw.org.

    Accept my sincere condolences. May you find some comfort in the words of 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4 which reads: "3 Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our trials" Yes, we can ask for help and rely on God. He also has made the sure promise of a resurrection right here on earth when it is restored to a beautiful paradise. (Acts 24:15; Psalms 37:9-11, 29). Be confident that this is SURE to happen because Isaiah 55:11 ensures us of this. Find out more online at JW.ORG
