    My sincere condolences to you on the loss of your loved one. Words cannot express the sorrow you’re feeling at this time. Or the pain your heart will continue to feel as the years pass. I too have lost loved ones and this promise found in God’s Word that in the near future, death along with the sting of pain and sorrow will soon be gone forever has brought me so much comfort. I hope this will bring you a measure of comfort too. Isaiah 25:8 - He (God)will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah (God’s name)will wipe away the tears from all faces. May this tract bring you some comfort:

    To the Family and Friends: I would like to express my sympathy. I am sorry to hear of your loss. The death of a love one is a painful experience. Our Heavenly Father is well aware of the hurt you feel. He promises in His Word the Holy Bible to remove pain, suffering, and death (Isaiah 25:8 and Revelation 21:3,4). We know that Almighty Jehovah God has not only the power but also yearns to fulfill this promise. Until that time,may you find comfort in this promise and treasure the special memories you shared.

    To the Robert family, my deepest sympathies to you. I am very sorry for your loss. God's original purpose for humankind was to live forever in Paradise on a beautiful earth. Death was not part of that original purpose. Unfortunately, in this world we live in, it is all too common to lose our loved ones in death, and it hurts. However, we won't hurt for long. John 5:28, 29 says, "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice, and come out." What this can mean for you is a real hope of being reunited with your dear loved ones. No doubt, that's a promise that you would like to see fulfilled. If you would like to know more, feel free to go to

    From personal experience, I know that losing a dear friend or relative in death is the hardest thing we have to deal with. At such a difficult time, we need loving support and encouragement. Revelation 21:4 "And He 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.” For additional comfort, please visit:
