    I'm so very sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. Death is never an easy thing to have to deal with, even Jesus himself wept when his friend Lazarus feel asleep in death and he knew he could resurrect him. This is what God's word the bible promises us a resurrection of our dead love ones. (John 5:28,29)

    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
