    To the Hamlin Family. Loosing your loved one has no doubt led you on a journey searching for lasting comfort and the strength to make it through the days ahead. You no longer have to search! Without a doubt, the primary source of consolation is our compassionate heavenly, Father, Jehovah. At 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 he describes himself as the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort who delivers us through all our trails...". He has the desire and the power to help you and your family through the tough days ahead. God is not a stranger to loss for he has lost friends such as Abraham, Isaac, Moses, and King David. God's Word assures you that Jehovah God has eagerly anticipated-has the earnest longing for-the time when he will bring them back to life. (Job 14:14-15) You can have unwavering confidence that Jehovah God will act in your behalf. So, do not hesitate to pour out your heart to him in prayer concerning your personal grief. (Psalms 65:2) Is it not comforting to know that God understands your pain and provides the comfort you so sorely needs. So during those lonely hours during the early mornings or late nights, take your Bible out and mediate on the scriptures sited above and experience God's embrace through his compassionate words found in his Holy Scriptures. May you and your family experience the everlasting comfort that only God can give!

    We don't know what to say except that we love you. We can't understand exactly how you feel, but Jehovah does and will keep raising you up. We hope that our prayers will help a little. Revelation 21:3,4 states that "The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be them. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more, neither will outcry or pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.

    God strengthens us by giving us "the power beyond what is normal" to make it through each passing day. Psalm 46:1 says: "God is our refuge and strength, a help that is readily found in times of distress". Nahum 1:7; God "is a stronghold in the day of distress, and is mindful of those seeking refuge in him". Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! (Psalm 36:7; 1 Peter 5:7)
