    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.

    So sorry for the loss of your dear mother, Griffin family. I've known Mrs. Genora since I was a kid living in James City. We were all neighbors back then. My heart cries because I feel like I've lost another precious part of our Mother community. God's Blessings to all her family. With love. Linda King.

    In his younger years, Jesus no doubt had to deal with the deaths of family members and acquaintances. It seems likely that Joseph, his adoptive father, died when Jesus was still a relatively young man.   Imagine how the tenderhearted Jesus, perhaps just in his teens or early 20’s, had to deal with his own grief, as well as that of his mother, brothers, and sisters. During all of your grieving, you too can find soothing comfort from such scriptures as the following: “Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; he saves those who are crushed in spirit.”?—Ps. 34:18, 19. “When anxieties overwhelmed me, you [Jehovah] comforted and soothed me.”?—Ps. 94:19. “May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and gave everlasting comfort and good hope by means of undeserved kindness, comfort your hearts and make you firm.”?—2 Thess. 2:16, 17.

    I would like to take this opportunity to extend my condolences to the Griffin family. Ms. Genora was a jolly, warm-spirit, kind, and generous Woman of God. When my sister married into the family, we kept and shared many jokes. We would laugh, laugh, and laugh. She will be missed. family, know that earth has no sorrow Heaven can not heal. Praying 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 didn't intend for us to live just a few decades and die. He thus, 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

    I am so sorry for the loss of your loved one.❤️ Death brings us all much pain. A pain that sometimes seems to never ease. It may seem like words may not even be able to express how you maybe feeling. Our Heavenly Father Jehovah God knows this. He knows how you are feeling and he cares for you. In his words found in the Bible at 1 Peter 5:7 he tells us that he cares for us, for each one. Jehovah God promises us so many blessings to look forward too. Promises that soon no one will feel pain anymore that’s at Revelation 21:3,4. I hope that these words from the Bible gives your family some comfort in your time of need.
