    To family and friends my deepest sympathies to you for the loss of your love one. Losing a loved one in death is very painful. Almighty God Jehovah (God's name; Psalms 83:18) promise that he will resurrect millions of people who have died. "And the earth will let those powerless in death come to life." Read Isaiah 26:19 "There is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and unrighteous." These are the words of Jesus Christ at John 5:28,29. Learn more about the resurrection hope and how Jesus is going to make God's wonderful promises come to be at jw.org. May the God of comfort and tender mercies sustain you at this difficult time. 2 Corinthians 1:3,4

    Family please accept my condolences. When we lose a loved one we all need comfort. We all grieve differently. Words fail to capture the pain you are feeling, we look forward to the time when words will fail to capture the joy of having our heavenly Father return our loved ones to us! [ John 5 : 28-29 ] This may not completely take away your grief, but please find comfort from these promises " Help for those who https://www.jw.org/finder?wtlocale=E&issue=2018-11&pub=g18&srcid=share

    My sincere condolences and prayers go out to the Sloan family. I never met Ms. Sloan but the excellent person that she raised her daughter Octavia to be speaks volume about what she stood for and the kind of person she was herself. Rest peacefully.

    To the family and friends of Mrs. Octavia Sloan , I’m sending my sympathy and warm Christian love. It’s so sad to lose a love one in death, but soon God’s kingdom will rule over mankind.(Matthew 6:10) Under that kingdom “no resident will say I am sick.”(Isaiah 33:24) There will be no death, no tears(Revelation 21:3,4) we will be able to live forever here on earth “in the abundance of peace.”(Psalms 37:11)

    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.
