    I sincerely offer my condolence. Words seem insufficient at this dire time. May you find real comfort and relief, and as a result, begin to recover gradually from the pain. I pray that love from those around you will help through the days ahead.

    We deeply feel for what you and the family are going through. At times, there isn't much that can soothe the pain this grief brings, but you may find some comfort in the words of Psalms 9:9 which reads: "Jehovah will become a secure refuge for the oppressed, A secure refuge in times of distress." Yes, our Loving God can help if we allow him to (1John 5:14). He also has made the SURE promise of a resurrection right here on earth, when it is restored to a Paradise (Acts 24:15; Psalms 37:9-11,29). No, not just a dream, but for a certainty he will do it, for Isaiah 55:11 shows us that everything he says, he accomplishes without fail. You can find out more online at JW.ORG

    My sympathy to the family. When someone we love dies the pain and feeling of helplessness can seem unbearable. May you draw close to God in prayer and he will sustain you.-Psalms 55:22
