    To the family, I am so sorry for your loss. During this sad time, may you take comfort in the Bible's positive message. In it, our Heavenly Father assures us of his loving support in times of grief, and he promises to reunite us with our dear loved ones (Psalm 34:18 and Isaiah 25:8). In the days to come, may these scriptures provide a measure of comfort for your family. For more encouraging thoughts, please visit

    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

    To the Family. Please accept my sincere condolences. God's Word is a great source of comfort and hope during difficult times and Jehovah God'the God of all comfort' (2 Corinthians 1:3) is fully aware of your sadness. Revelation 21:4 promises, "He will wipe out every tear" and will bring back to life those who sleep in death as Acts 24:15 promises, "There is going to be a resurrection." ~Revelation 21:5

    Losing Helen is to me the same as a loss of a member of my immediate family. Not only is she a Continental sister but a long-time friend, colleague, neighbor, confidant and fellow-traveler. One could not help feeling upbeat and happy in Helen's presence. Her cherry disposition, beautiful smile and friendly demeanor were gifts that she generously shared with all who were fortunate to know her. I will miss her dearly but am grateful for being able to consider her a dear friend for so many years, To "Bee Bee" and all other members of family, please accept my heartfelt sympathy and know that my thoughts and prayers are with you. Sorrowfully, Lois Harrison-Jones Fears

    To The Family, I am sorry to hear of you loss. The death of a loved one can be a very challenging time for the entire family. I hope that you can find comfort and solace in God’s Word the Bible. The Bible says at Acts 24:15 “…that there is going to be a resurrection…” May this verse and other verses provide some relief during this difficult time.

    Please accept my heartfelt condolence on the loss of your dear one; Ms. Wallace. My family and I have found comfort in the Bible's promise of a time when death will be no more; - "And He (God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." - Revelation 21:4. May the memories of your loved one sustain you until God's promises are soon fulfilled - "For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who recognizes the Son and exercises faith in him should have everlasting life, and I will resurrect him on the last day."- John 6:40. Please visit for more of God's marvelous promises that 'is around the corner'.
