    My deepest sympathies are with the Carter family for the passing of your love one Roger. His passing is a devastating experience for your family however, our Heavenly Father Jehovah is aware of your lost and Jehovah offered his son Jesus who gave his life in order for Roger to have the hope in a resurrection. Acts 25:16 confirms this promise which states, “there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and unrighteous” at which time god will remember Roger’s life and bring him back. So, during this time of deep sorrow, draw close to Jehovah because he will stregthen and sustain your family.

    May God continue to Bless and comfort the family as they go through this time. Death has no sorrow that Heaven can't Heal.

    We can look forward to the day when there will be no more sickness and death. Revelation 21:4 says: "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". God cares for the brokenhearted; Psalm 34:18 assures us that he is close to them. Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! (Psalm 36:7; 1 Peter 5:7)

    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.
