    To the family. I would like to send my condolences. I also would like to encourage the family to please consider what God's word the Bible says about our Dear Love Ones who have fallen asleep in death. At John 5v28,29 Jesus says that there will be a RESURRECTION!! And by means of this resurrection, Job 33v25 says that Our Dear Love Ones will return to the days of their Youthful VIGOR! Truly encouraging future PROMISES that will soon take place. For additional Bible Based topics that effects us all please visit

    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; God's name) promises that he will resurrect millions of people who have died. "There is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and unrighteous." Read John 5:28,29 and Acts 24:15. Learn more about Jesus Christ and how he will make God's wonderful promises come true at May the God of comfort and tender mercies sustain you during this most difficult time. 2 Corinthians 1:3,4

    My deepest sympathies to the family and friends. The Bible offers not only comfort and hope to the family but hope for our dead loved ones as well. When Jesus was on earth he performed several resurrections and has promised a resurrection in the future. (John 5:28,29) Rejoice in this most precious hope as you reflect on loving memories of your loved one

    We're so sorry about your loss. Please find comfort from the words found at 1 Corinthians 1:3, 4 which reads: "3 Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our trials" Yes, we can ask for help and rely on God. He also has made the SURE promise of a resurrection RIGHT HERE ON EARTH when it is restored to a beautiful paradise. (Acts 24:15; Psalms 37:9-11, 29). Be confident that this is SURE to happen because Isaiah 55:11 ensures us of this. Find out more online at JW.ORG

    I am deeply sorry for your loss. I know how hard losing a loved one can be. Prayer is a major healer because God is close to those who are in pain at heart. He hears the prayers of those who cry for help. God hates death just as much as we do and that is why he plans to do something about it in the near future. 1 Corinthians 15:26 reads: "And the last, enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing." God will also resurrect our dead loved ones. Acts 24:15 reads: "And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous." You and your family are in my prayers. Please accept my sincere condolences. - search resurrection (for comfort that will bring you to your copy of the Bible)
