    To the family, I am so sorry for your loss. In the days ahead, may you look forward to the time when tears, pain, and death will be gone forever (Revelation 21:3,4). Take care.

    May God give you comfort and peace in the passing of your loved one. She will be missed from this earthly place but God knew what was best for her.

    We deeply feel for what you and the family are going through. At times, there isn't much that can soothe the pain this grief brings, but you may find some comfort in the words of Psalms 9:9 which reads: "Jehovah will become a secure refuge for the oppressed, A secure refuge in times of distress." Yes, our Loving God can help if we allow him to (1John 5:14). He also has made the SURE promise of a resurrection right here on earth, when it is restored to a Paradise (Acts 24:15; Psalms 37:9-11,29). No, not just a dream, but for a certainty he will do it, for Isaiah 55:11 shows us that everything he says, he accomplishes without fail. You can find out more online at JW.ORG
