    My deepest sympathies are with your family for passing of your love one, Dennis. Dennis’s passing is a painful experience for your family and words of comfort is most difficult to express to you. However, our Heavenly Father, Jehovah gives you the best comforts, because he knows the pain you’re feeling. He comforts you by offering Dennis the resurrection hope. That is why he gave his son Jesus who sacrificed his life so Dennis could have the resurrection hope. Acts 24:15 stated, “there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and unrighteous”. It is at that time that God will remember everything about Dennis and bring him back. This a comforting to know he has this hope. So draw close to the god of all comfort, Jehovah because he will stregthen and sustain your family during this time of sorrow. ( for more info go to

    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 you and he cares for you! (Psalm 36:7; 1 Peter 5:7)
