    I am truly sorry to read of the passing of your loved one, Ricky. He will be missed. It may comfort you to know that God's Word the Bible holds out a sure hope of seeing Ricky again, vibrant and healthy as before. This hope is can be found at John 5:28,29. This hope will be made a reality by means of God's Kingdom in which we pray for in the Lord's Prayer. Once more I am sorry for your loss.

    We're so sorry to hear you are mourning the recent loss of your loved one. May you find strength and comfort from the words of Psalms 46:1 which reads: "God is our refuge and strength, A help that is readily found in times of distress." Our loving God is there for us if we ask for his help (1 John 5:14). He didn't intend for us to grow old 9and 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.
