    Please accept my condolences, I have not met the family personally however I was very sorry to read that Airlean Simmons fell asleep in death. When death separates family members, such great loss can result in deep sorrow. Life is so tender, so fragile, so very precious. Airlean Simmons has no doubt left behind a thousand moments that will live in your heart forever. Remember that "God is our refuge and strength" (Psalm 46:1). Praying for you and your family during this time Be Strengthened, Blessed & Encouraged

    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.

    I am so sorry to hear about the loss of Airlean Simmons. The loss of a loved one is never easy to cope with. Words and feelings maybe hard to express, but Jehovah God our Heavenly Father knows exactly how you feel. Like a concerned parent Jehovah cares for you and he lets us know through his words the Bible found at 1Peter 5:7. Jehovah God also promises that soon he will get rid of all pain, suffering, and death. As the many memories of Airlean brings you comfort, remember Jehovah is here for you.

    Accept our 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
