    May we offer our sincere condolences to the Kuykendall family for your loss. Losing a loved one is one of the most difficult things in life to deal with. Lovingly, the Bible assures us that God sees your pain and promises a beautiful future where he will "swallow up death" and "wipe away the tears from all faces." (Isaiah 25:8). We hope your precious memories will console you in the days ahead. And, as the days and weeks pass, and you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends.

    My condolences to the Kuykendall family at this time of loss. Mrs. Kuykendall truly enjoyed a long life. Now she is asleep in God's memory with the hope of awakening to life again at a time when all causes of suffering, pain, sickness, and even death are all things of the past. (John 5:28,29; Revelation 21:4) May you reflect often on all your happy memories and let them along with these promises from God bring you comfort and peace.

    We're so sorry to hear you are mourning the recent loss of your loved one. May you find strength and comfort from the words of Psalms 46:1 which reads: "God is our refuge and strength, A help that is readily found in times of distress." Our loving God is there for us if we ask for his help (1 John 5:14). 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.
