    To family and friends my deepest sympathy for the loss of your loved one. Losing a loved one in death is very painful and Almighty God Jehovah (Psalms 83:18) knows the pain that you now have at this most difficult time. HE promises that those in the grave will live again right here on the earth. (Isaiah 26:19) This is what the Bible calls the resurrection. Jesus promised that there's going to be a resurrection of all those in the grave and they will hear his voice and come out at John 5:28,29.

    Please accept my sincere condolences, may the God of love Jehovah be with you at this painful time. It will be a happy day when those we miss awaken from their sleep. Jehovah promises at Acts 24;15, " I hope toward God...that there is going to be a resurrection. " May this hope bring you comfort during this difficult time.

    My sincere condolences to the family during this time of loss. Even Jesus wept at the loss of a loved one. Please draw comfort from the scriptural promises at Rev 21:3, 4 and know that God fulfils all his promises. Isa 55:11

    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

    Dear Smith family. I am so sorry to have read of the death of Motha. Please accept my sincere condolences. I would like to share something that I have personally found to be comforting. It is found in the Bible at John 5:28, 29 and Revelation 21:4. (Please read) May God give you and your family comfort in His promise that soon we will never experience losing our loved ones in death and we will be able to see them again once they are resurrected. With deepest sympathy and warmth of heart.
