    To The Family, I am sorry to hear of your loss. The death of a loved one is a difficult time for the entire family. It is my wish that you can find comfort in God's Word the Bible. The Bible says at Ezekiel 18:32 " ' I do not take pleasure in the death of anyone', declares the Sovereign Lord Jehovah. ’So turn back and live.'” In this verse the Bible is assuring all mankind that the True God is not the cause of death and that it is something he dislikes. I hope that you can find some relief and solace in this verse and other scriptures during this challenging time.

    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 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.

May the memories of your loved one sustain you until God's promises are soon fulfilled - "For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who recognizes the Son and exercises faith in him should have everlasting life, and I will resurrect him on the last day."- John 6:40.

    To the Family. Please accept my sincere condolences. God's Word is a great source of comfort and hope during difficult times and Jehovah God, 'the God of all comfort' (2 Corinthians 1:3) is fully aware of your sadness. Revelation 21:4 promises, "He will wipe out every tear" and will bring back to life those who sleep in death, as Acts 24:15 promises, "There is going to be a resurrection." Please be assured of these future events because God himself declares 'I am making all things new' and 'these words are faithful and true.' ~Revelation 21:5

    I offer my condolences for your loss and I deeply sympathize with you. There is hope, however. In the Bible, our loving God Jehovah promises of a time when there will be no suffering. That scripture is found in Revelations 21:4 which reads: "And he(God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." What a wonderful hope that is!! If you would like to know more, you can visit our website at www.jw.org for more information about a variety of topics.
