    Dear Fewell family, I am so sorry to have read of the recent death of your loved one Michael. Please accept my most sincere condolences. May you find the comfort from the Scriptures at John 5:28,29 where Jehovah God promises a resurrection of our loved ones through his son Christ Jesus. And then the wonderful hope in the near future to the end of all the causes for our sufferings including sickness and death promised at Revelation 21:3-5. When I've lost loved ones these Scriptures have comforted me as I hope they will help your family also. In your time of need may God's loving arms surround your family during this most difficult time of your lives. Please accept my deepest sympathy on your loss.

    Accept our heartfelt sympathy in your recent loss. May you find strength and comfort from the words of Nahum 1:7 Which reads: “Jehovah is good, a stronghold in the day of distress. He is mindful of those seeking refuge in him.” Yes, our loving God is there for us if we allow him to 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.
