    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.

    My condolences in the loss of Mr. Blackmon. When we lose a loved one in death our hearts are heavy as we reflect on their loss, but the Bible says at Acts 24:15 There is going to be a resurrection. John 5:28,29 Jesus says those in the memorial tomb will hear my voice and come out. These scriptures refer to an earthly resurrection where we will have the opportunity to enjoy our loved ones again on a paradise restored earth.
