    To the Blount Family I am truly sorry to hear of the passing of Miss Blanche. Please accept 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.

    I am sending my condolences to the family. When someone we love dies its very painful. But the Bible talks about God doing away with pain at Rev 21:4. May the God of comfort provide solace to your family at this time.

    To the Family of Blanch Blount, I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your loved one. Words may not be able to express how you may feel at this time, but our God Jehovah knows exactly how you feel. He cares for you. Jehovah God promises that soon he will remove all pain, suffering, and death.(Rev 21:4) As you think about the wonderful memories of your loved one, remember Jehovah wants to help you during your time of need.

    My deepest condolences go out to the Blount family. Death of a loved one causes a deep pain in our hearts. A pain that can seem unbearable at times. Jehovah God wants to give us some comfort in this time. He promises us that just a little while longer that pain will no longer affect us. Jehovah will remove all pain and suffering that he promises us in Rev 21:4. I pray that your family find comfort in Jehovah's future promises.

    We deeply feel for your loss. At times, there isn't much that can soothe the pain this grief brings, but you may find some comfort in the words of Psalms 9:9 which reads: "Jehovah will become a secure refuge for the oppressed, A secure refuge in times of distress." Yes, our Loving God can help if we allow him to (1John 5:14). He also has made the SURE promise of a resurrection right here on earth, when it is restored to a Paradise (Acts 24:15; Psalms 37:9-11,29). No, not just a dream, but for a certainty he will do it, for Isaiah 55:11 shows us that everything he says, he accomplishes without fail. Find out more about this resurrection online at JW.ORG
