    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/

    I'm very sorry for the death of your loved one. He will be in my prayers. I hope this scripture at Revelation 21:4 can provide some comfort. For more encouragement please visit Jw.org.

    It is indeed sad that you are mourning the loss of your dear Bobbie. Please accept my condolences and know that our loving God is keenly aware of your distressing pain. His comforting word assures us that in due time, he will eliminate all suffering on earth, including death. Notice how the Bible stresses that fact in the faith strengthening video below: vimeo.com/237369198

    It seems unfair that death should have the power to take away someone we love. When it happens the thought of never again being able to talk, laugh, comfort, or hold your loved one again can be devastating. My condolences go out to the family. As you prepare to lay your loved one to rest, may you can find comfort from your Bibles at Nahum 1:7. God is a stronghold for the distressed

    My sincere condolences to the Jackson family. So sorry for your loss. May you find comfort in the Bible's hope for the future. 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. I know you yearn to be with the ones you love again, and Almighty God Jehovah yearns to bring back those who are in his memory and to see them live on earth again. (Job 14:14,15)

    My condolences to the Jackson family, the death of a loved one can be hard and 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.

    To The Family, You have my deepest sympathy on the loss of your dear beloved family member. Jehovah knew that death would cause much suffering, therefore he provided a ransom in Jesus so that we may have an opportunity to live in the future without the threat of dying. Jesus said, "I am the resurrection and the life," at John 11:25. He will resurrect obedient mankind to a beautiful paradise home. Take comfort in this guarantee.

    You have my deepest sympathy. May Jehovah ( Psalm 83:18), comfort and sustain you at this time of such great loss, Psalm 46:1 and Isaiah 41:10,13.

    You all have my sympathy. At Jeremiah 31:13, God has promised, "I will change their mourning into exultation. I will comfort them and give them joy instead of their grief." We can look forward to the fulfillment of that promise. Until then, turn to "the God of tender mercies and the God of all comfort" in prayer. 2 Corinthians 1:3

    My condolences to the Jackson family in the loss of your dear loved one. When we experience a death of someone we love, it pains our hearts. Our loving God Jehovah understands how we feel, and he offers us comfort by means of his word the Bible. Psalm 147:3 says: He (God) heals the brokenhearted; He binds up their wounds. The comforting words at Revelation 21:4 tells us: And he (God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. May these scriptures bring comfort and calmness of heart to you at this time of bereavement.
