    To the Barber family, my deepest sympathies to you. I am very sorry for your loss. God's original purpose for humankind was to live forever in Paradise on a beautiful earth. Death was not part of that original purpose. Unfortunately, in this world we live in, it is all too common to lose our loved ones in death, and it hurts. However, we won't hurt for long. John 5:28, 29 says, "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice, and come out." What this can mean for you is a real hope of being reunited with your dear loved ones. No doubt, that's a promise that you would like to see fulfilled. If you would like to know more, feel free to go to jw.org.

    My condolences to the Barber family, the death of a loved one can be hard and very painful. However you can find comfort from Jehovah God (Psalm 83:18). He is the God of all comfort and will comfort you in your trials (2 Corinthians 1:3,4). You can also have the hope of a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous (Acts 24:15). This truly is something wonderful you can look forward to.

    My sincere condolences for the loss of your loved one. Death is truly an enemy and soon Jehovah God will eliminate it permanently and resurrect those lost in death. In fact, he yearns to do so. It is his promise and he cannot lie. May his promise bring you comfort. (Job 14:14,15)

    Our sincere condolences to you on the loss of your loved one. Words cannot express the sorrow you’re feeling at this time. Or the pain your heart still feel as the years have passed since your loved one has died. I too have lost loved ones and this promise found in God’s Word that in the near future, death along with the pain and sorrow will soon be gone in the near future has brought me comfort. I hope this will bring you a measure of comfort too. Isaiah 25:8 - He (God)will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah (God’s name)will wipe away the tears from all faces. http://www.jw.org/en/publications/books/dead-live-again-tract/dead-live-again/

    Ms. Shirley was a special friend and a wonderful neighbor to me for more than 19 years. I will miss her care and that smile!! She cared for me, my daughter, my grandchildren and husband. I needed an angel when I met her and she was that to me! She was my friend. God please keep her family in perfect peace during this time.
