    To the family, I am so sorry for your loss. What has helped my family to endure similar loss is the Bible's positive message. In it, our Heavenly Father assures us of his loving support in difficult times, and he promises to reunite us with our dear loved ones (Psalm 34:18 and John 5:28,29). In the days ahead, may these thoughts help to encourage your family. For more comforting thoughts, please visit jw.org. Take care.

    We're sorry to hear about your recent loss. May you find strength from the words of Psalms 46:1 which reads: "God is our refuge and strength, A help that is readily found in times of distress." What a loving God who cares about each one of us. He didn't intend for us to grow old and die. He thus has made the SURE promise of a resurrection right here on earth when it is restored to a beautiful paradise (Psalms 37:9-11, 29; Acts 24:15; Isaiah 55;11). Can you see yourself welcoming back to life your loved ones? What a joy it will bring all of us. You can go online to JW.ORG and find out more about this resurrection.
