    Our warmest sympathies goes to you and yours in these difficult moments. May you find strength from the words of 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4 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 so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God. 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.

    To the family of Mr. Walker, heartfelt condolences in your loss. When the sting of death takes away those we love we feel a void, emptiness in our heart. That is why Jesus says at John 14: 1 "Do not let your hearts be troubled, exercise faith in God, exercise faith in me". He says at John 5: 28, 29 those in the memorial tomb will hear my voice and come out. Acts 24: 15 says there is going to be a resurrection. May you envision this time when you can be reunited with your loved one again to enjoy life forever on a paradise restored earth (Psalms 37: 11).
