    I would like to extend my sincere condolences to the family at this time. During this sad time, may you take comfort from the Bible's positive message. In it, our Heavenly Father assures us of his loving support in times of grief (Psalm 34:28). In the days to come, may you look forward to the time when death will be a thing of the past (Revelation 21:3,4). For more comforting thoughts, please visit jw.org. Take care.
