    My sincere condolences to you on the loss of your loved one. Words cannot express the sorrow you’re feeling at this time. Or the pain your heart will continue to feel as the years pass. I too have lost loved ones and this promise found in God’s Wordy that in the near future, death along with the sting of pain and sorrow will soon be gone forever has brought me so much comfort. I hope this will bring you a measure of comfort too. Isaiah 25:8 - He (God)will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah (God’s name)will wipe away the tears from all faces. May this tract bring you some comfort: http://www.jw.org/en/publications/books/dead-live-again-tract/dead-live-again/

    To the family of Annie Burley. I am sorry for your loss of a very special person to all of you. Death as we know in this world is a part of life that we find hard to accept. When Jesus was on the earth he showed what he would do in God's kingdom. The Bible holds out many future hopes. You can read about these hopes in your Bible at REV 21:3, 4 John 5:28,29. You may also visit www.jw.org for additional Bible based reading

    We're sorry to hear about your recent loss. May you find strength from the words of Philippians 4:13 which says: "For all things I have the strength through the one who gives me power." What a loving God who cares about each one of us. 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.

    My deepest condolences to all the love ones of the dearly departed. The words found at 2 Corinthians chapter 1 verses 3 and 4 were especially comforting to me and my family during the loss of our parents and dear loved ones. It says, "Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with comfort that we receive from God." May these words strengthen you too.

    We are so much affected when we heard of the death of your loved one. Please accept our condolences. Going through something like this will take a toll on your heart for the rest of your life. However, there is comfort that can be gained from looking into the words of comfort that our creator Jehovah God provides in his word the Bible. I will share a few with you. The listed scriptures give us insight as to what will happen in the near future. There are many more that explain why we die and what hope we have. Revelation 21:3-4; Isaiah 65:17 and John 5:29. Mary

    I want to give my sincere condolences to the Family. Losing any love one is just devastating! The Bible speaks of a WONDERFUL Time when your love one will literally COME back to LIFE in GOD whose name is JEHOVAH at Psalms 83:18 Paradise HERE on EARTH at John 5:28,29 Also Revelation 21:3-5! Jehovah who cannot LIE at TITUS 1:2 puts HIS reputation on the line in The Holy BIBLE bcz HIS WORDS that are in the Holy Scriptures of the BIBLE are FAITHFUL and TRUE!
