    The passing of your beloved Amanda is a daunting experience for your family. However, the Bible offers Amanda the hope of a resurrection. Since it was never God’s original purpose for anyone to die but live for ever. Our Heavenly Father arranged for his purpose for us to live when a person dies. He sent his son Jesus who gave his life so all would have the hope of a resurrection. Acts 24:15 assures us of this it states, “there will be a resurrection of both the righteous and unrighteous” and at this time God will remember every detail about Amanda and bring her back. So during this time of sorrow pray to the god of all comfort, Jehovah, he will stregthen and sustain you. (for more info go to JW.org)
