    I’m sorry to hear of the loss of your love one Sam. His passing is a painful experience for your family. Please accept my deepest sympathies. Furthermore, the Bible offers your family comfort knowing that Sam have the hope of a resurrection. Our Heavenly Father, Jehovah’s original purpose was not for us to die but to live forever. That is why he sent his son, Jesus to redeem us from the grip of death. Acts 24:25 states, “there will be a resurrection of both the righteous and unrighteous” and at that time he will remember every detail about Sam and bring him back again. Therefore, draw close to the of all comfort, Jehovah, because he will not only comfort you he will also sustain you. (go to for more info)

    We are so sorry to hear about you recent loss. May you find comfort in the words of Psalms 34:18 which reads: " Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit " Yes, we can ask for help and rely on God. He also has made the sure promise of a resurrection right here on earth when it is restored to a beautiful paradise. (Acts 24:15; Psalms 37:9-11, 29). Be confident that this is SURE to happen because Isaiah 55:11 ensures us of this.
