    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.

    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.

    To the family of Ms. Poole, I am deeply sorry for your loss. It is always difficult to face the death of a loved one but one place I always found comfort is within God's word, the Bible. Psalms 34:18 says that God is "close to the brokenhearted; he saves those who are crushed in spirit." Other than family and friends, remember to rely on our most high God. He will always be there for you. He even offers an amazing hope for the future at Revelations 21:4 and John 5:28,29. I encourage you all to take a look at this scripture and I hope it will bring you the kind of inner peace and encouragement that it has brought me in times of great sadness. Again, I am sorry for your loss.

    With heartfelt sympathy for your loss. I pray that God's promise of a resurrection may bring you comfort. At Job 14:14 and 15 that promise shows that God will call the name of those lost in death and restore them to life. In fact, he yearns to do so because he intended for mankind to live forever. God knows the pain of this kind of loss and he sees every tear. That is why he will remove death completely. May his spirit help you endure until that time. To learn more please visit

    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:

    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!
