    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.

    My deepest sympathies to the Barnes family. I know that your family is experiencing the loss of a dear loved one. This indeed is a very painful time. Rest assured that our loving God, Jehovah, is certainly aware of how you're feeling. In His Word, the Bible, he promises to raise up our dear loved ones through the beautiful hope of a resurrection. (Acts 24:15) May "the God of comfort" give you the strength to get through the days ahead. (2 Corinthians 1:3, 4) If you would like to know more about the hope your dear loved ones have, feel free to visit jw.org.

    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/

    To The Family, I am sorry to hear of your loss. The death of a loved one is such a difficult time for the entire family. I hope you can find comfort in God's Word the Bible. At John 5:28, 29 the man Jesus Christ said, "...the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out..." This scripture helps us to appreciate that one day in the near future we can see our loved ones whom we have lost to that enemy death. What a wonderful hope for the future. I am confident that this scripture and other verses in the Bible will provide some solace and relief during this time of sorrow.

    While it is indeed sad that you are mourning the loss of your dear Herbert, it saddens God more. In the days ahead, you will continue to reflect on seemingly small, yet precious memories. However, be comforted in knowing that just as we have memories, almighty God remembers too. The difference is, God has the ability to restore perfect life to those in His memory. Notice how the Bible express the fact in the video: 🖥 https://vimeo.com/233808431

    Dear Barnes family, I wanted to send you my deepest sympathies. I am very sorry for your loss. I can sympathize with the hurt and emptiness of heart you are feeling. Death has been an enemy to each of us, taking those we love so dearly. Soon there will be no more pain, illnesses, or death to cause so much grief, for the Bibles' promises are so fulfilling and gives us a beautiful hope for the future. 1 Peter 5:7 assures us that "Almighty God cares for us." So soon He will undo the effects of suffering, sickness, mourning, wickedness, and will "swallow up death forever." (Isaiah 25:8; Revelation 21:4)

    My condolences to the family in the loss of your dear loved one. There is nothing more painful in life then losing a loved one in death. Our loving God Jehovah understand how you feel because death was not a part of his original purpose for mankind. He gives comfort from his word the Bible to help cope with the loss. Psalm 94:19 says;"When anxieties overwhelmed me. You (God) comforted and soothed me". As 2 Thessalonians 2:16,17 so beautifully state; May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God (Jehovah) our Father, who loved us and gave everlasting comfort and good hope by means of undeserved kindness, comfort your hearts and make you firm.

    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.

    May Jehovah the God of all comfort be with the Barnes family during this difficult time. Psalms 83:18
  • Wednesday, November 15, 2017
    I want to offer my condolences to the Barnes family and friends. It is a painful thing to lose a love one in death. Death is so painful that even Jesus, when Lazarus died, "gave way to tears"(John 11: 35). Our heavenly Father of tender mercies has given us comfort through the scriptures. He calls death an enemy and will be taken away forever (1 Corinthians 15:26; Isaiah 25:8). Look at this promise he has given to awaken our love ones in the memorial tombs from asleep in death__ Hosea 13:14 “From the power of the Grave I will redeem them; From death I will recover them.” I hope these words give all of you comfort and hope.

May the God of all comfort provide you with strength in this most difficult time (2 Corinthians 1:3,4). God promises that soon He will remove all causes of pain, suffering, and death (Revelation 21:3,4). We know that Almighty Jehovah God has not only the power but also yearns to fulfill this promise. Until that time, may you find comfort in this promise and treasure the special memories you shared.

    To the family and friends of the deceased, Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. Many have found true comfort from the pages of God's word the Bible (2 Corinthians 1:3-5}. The Bible tells us why we die (Genesis 2:16, 17; Romans 5:12) the condition of the dead (Ecclesiastes 9:5) and that we can be reunited with our loved ones (Acts 24:15). The Bible also tells us where this happy event will take place (Psalm 37:29; 115:16). At John 17:3 Jesus tells us the benefit of reading and studying the Bible. He also said at John 8:32 that "the truth will set you free". Please visit JW.org to learn what the Bible really teaches.

    My condolences to the Barnes family, the death of a loved one can 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 your family can look forward to.
