    The passing of your love one Dudley is one of life’s most painful experience for your family. Please accept my deepest sympathies. Moreover, our Heavenly Father Jehovah is keenly aware of the passing of Dudley and it is comforting to know that Jehovah have provided Dudley the hope of a resurrection through God’s son Jesus, who gave his life for this reason. The assurance of this promise is found in the Bible. Acts 24:15 states, “there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and unrighteous” and at that time God will remember every detail about Dudley and bring him back. So may your family during this time of sorrow and sadness draw close to the god of all comfort, Jehovah because he will stregthen and sustain your family. ( go to JW.org for more info)

    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.
