    My condolences to the family in the loss of your dear loved one. May you be comforted by the scripture found at Psalm 94:19 which says; "When anxieties overwhelmed me. You (God) comforted and soothed me". And the wonderful promise at Psalm 68:20; The true God is for us a God who saves; And Jehovah the Sovereign Lord provides escape from death. These scriptures can strengthen and comfort you during this sad time. For more comfort please visit our website: and view the video; Is There Hope for the Dead?

    we're so sorry to hear you are mourning the recent loss of your loved one. May you find strength and comfort 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." Our loving God is there for us if we ask for his help (1 John 5:14). 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. ~~~You are also cordially invited to the memorial of Jesus death. The means by which the promise of a paradise is possible.

    God will sustain you with his "right hand of righteousness" during this difficult time and through each passing day. Isaiah 41:10 says: "Do not be afraid, for I am with you. Do not be anxious, for I am your God. I will fortify you, yes, I will help you, I will really hold on to you with my right hand of righteousness". Isaiah 41:13; I "am grasping your right hand, the One (God) saying to you,...'I will help you'". Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves and he cares for you! (2 Corinthians 1:3,4; Revelation 21:4)
