    Death of a loved one always bring sadness .that is because we want them to live and be with family forever . Death was not part of Jehovah purpose in the beginning [ Gen. 1:26-28] at John 3:16 the bible teaches that God really loves us and want us to live and be with family forever . In the future he will stop death from taking those we love away from us. [Rev. 21:4] what about those who have already died. The bible contain much information about life when Jehovah will bring back to life those who have died. Read JOHN chapter eleven it tells of an account where Jesus Christ showed that his father had given him power to returned life to the man there who had died .He can do the same for Mr. Hopkins. . [John 5:28-29] We hope that by reading those scriptures you will find comfort.

    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.
