    I am so sorry for the loss of your dear loved one. There is a very comforting scripture found at Isaiah 25:8. It says that soon Jehovah will swallow up death forever and that he will wipe away all of the tears. So we can look forward to a time when death will be done away with forever. I hope that this scripture can bring some comfort during this time.

    Family of Nathaniel Boone, There are few experiences more difficult than losing a loved one in death; no doubt Mr. Boone will be missed by all who knew him. I find comfort in the guarantee that life will be restored. Jesus not only spoke of the coming resurrection (John 5:21, 28, 29), he himself was resurrected by his Father and performed many miracles. All such miraculous events, including resurrections, took place on earth giving us a precious glimpse of what is to come.......seeing our loved ones again! (Acts 24:15) Death was not God’s purpose for mankind & his purpose has not changed. God’s word is clear, “He will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces”. (Isaiah 25:8; Revelation 21:4) As you cherish the many fond memories of Mr. Boone, may Jehovah God continue to bless your family during this difficult time & in the days ahead......

    Nathaniel was a student in my AP Biology class during his senior year of high school. He was a remarkable young man, always positive, always concerned for his fellow classmates. I am so sorry to hear about his passing. I am fortunate to have known him.

    Sending our deepest and sincere condolences to the family of Nathaniel Boone. I never met him, I just knew of him through my sister who also has TM. She was so proud and spoke very highly of him during his last few years of life. He will be greatly missed by her, her sisters, and the TM families. R.I.P. Nathaniel......

    I had the pleasure of having Nathaniel in my honors physics class a couple of years ago. He was the kind of student who brightened up everyone's day. I never saw him without the biggest smile, and he was always positive, cheerful and a pleasure to know. He had a huge impact on everyone who knew him, including me, and he will be much missed. I want to extend my sincere and heartfelt thoughts and prayers to your family, and assure you that he will be remembered by those he impacted with his faith, courage and perseverance.

    To Nathaniel's Family, We grieve with you in the loss of Nathaniel. He and our grandson, Rodney Jenkins, were friends since Kindergarten. Nathaniel had so many wonderful attributes: smart, confident, optimistic, dedicated and he encouraged Rodney. We can never thank God enough for Nathaniel's friendship with Rodney. Nathaniel was the kind of friend parents and grandparents would want their children to befriend. We pray that God consoles your hearts and gives you His peace.

    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.
