    The lost of your love one Howard is a painful experience for your family and my sincere condolences are with you. Furthermore, our Heavenly Father Jehovah is most aware of the passing of Howard and it is comforting to know that Jehovah has provided the resurrection hope for Howard. Jehovah achieved this promise by sending his son Jesus who gave his life in order for the resurrection could be realized. Acts 24:15 confirms the resurrection hope which states, “there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous”. At that time god will remember all about Howard’s life and bring him back. So, during this time of sadness “draw close to Jehovah and he will draw close to you”(James 4:8) because he will sustain your family.

    God strengthens us by giving us "the power beyond what is normal" to make it through each passing day. Psalm 46:1 says: "God is our refuge and strength, a help that is readily found in times of distress". Isaiah 41:13; I "am grasping your right hand, the One (God) saying to you,...'I will help you'". Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! (Psalm 36:7; 1 Peter 5:7)

    We're sorry to hear about your recent loss. May you find strength from the words of Philippians 4:13 which says: "For all things I have the strength through the one who gives me power." 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.
