    My sympathies to the Smith family. I'm very sorry for your loss. The difficult time of losing someone we love leads to many questions in our minds, and leaves a pain in our hearts. May God's Word bring you hope and strength to endure. John 5:28,29 speaks of a resurrection hope for the future. What that can mean for you is a real hope of being reunited with your dear loved ones. It is my hope that you're able to find comfort now and in the days ahead. My sincere thoughts and condolences.

    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.
