    To the family, I am sincerely sorry for your loss. Sometimes the hardest thing to do is continue on after the loss of a loved one, but please be assured that Jehovah God is aware of what you're feeling. Psalm 34:18 states "God is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit". God can and will provide you with the comfort & strength to endure during these difficult times. God promises us that there will be a resurrection, that will take place after he does away with death once and for all time. (Rev 21:4 & John 5:28-29) Then we will never have to experience the pangs of death ever again. I pray these words and scriptures brings you comfort.

    It saddens us to hear you are mourning the loss of your loved one. May you find strength and comfort from the words of Psalms 34:18. It reads: “Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit." 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). What a joy it will be to welcome back to life your loved ones who are asleep in death!! 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.

    To the Cates family. I am so sorry for your loss. The Bible says at Psalms 18:2 that Jehovah can rescue you during your time of distress.

    I extend my sincere condolences to the Cates family on their loss. Jehovah God promises us that through his son Jesus, he will wipe out every tear from our eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. Revelation 21:3,4 Please take comfort from this promise during your time of bereavement.
