    To the family of Mr. Bighams, So sorry for your loss, the sting we feel when we lose a loved one can be hard to cope with. Wanted to share a scripture that has brought comfort to many. It is in John 5:28, 29. That scripture promises that we will have an opportunity to see our dead loved ones again.

    Inell, we deeply feel for what you and the family are going through. At times, there isn't much that can soothe the pain this grief brings, but you may find some comfort in the words of Psalms 9:9 which reads: "Jehovah will become a secure refuge for the oppressed, A secure refuge in times of distress." Yes, our Loving God can help if we allow him to (1John 5:14). He also has made the SURE promise of a resurrection right here on earth, when it is restored to a Paradise (Acts 24:15; Psalms 37:9-11,29). No, not just a dream, but for a certainty he will do it, for Isaiah 55:11 shows us that everything he says, he accomplishes without fail. Find out more about this resurrection online at JW.ORG

    Many prayers sent to the family for strength to endure the pain of losing a loved one in death. John 5:28-29 is a promise that the Almighty God gives us.
