    I'm so very sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. The bible does provide us with comfort and hope in times such as these. Revelation 21:4 says that God will wipe every tear from our eyes and death and pain will be no more.

    I would like to offer you my sincere sympathy, for the passing of your loved one. I hope you will look forward to the time when you are reunited with them again; when Jesus resurrects all those who are now sleeping in death, restoring them back to life with the hope of eternal life on the renewed Paradise earth.-John 5:28,29; Luke 23:43. Until that blessed event, may you find peace and comfort in GOD's love.-1John 4:8.

    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. You can find out more online at JW.ORG

    Please accept my heartfelt condolences. It is always painful to lose a loved one. I too have lost many dear ones to death. In the Lord’s prayer. Jesus says at Matthew chapter 6, verse 10: ‘Let your kingdom come. Let your will take place, as in heaven, also on earth.’ I find this comforting because nowhere in the Bible is sickness or death mentioned as occurring in heaven; hence, I look forward to seeing God’s will for the earth to be carried out just as it is in heaven. Then we can be reunited with our loved, and enjoy life on earth forever as Almighty God Jehovah purposed from the beginning. [Psalm 37:29] I sincerely hope that these words serve as some comfort to you at this time. For further Scriptural encouragement visit
