    I would like to express my sympathy to the family. 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.

    I am sorry for your loss. We have a sure hope of seeing our love ones again, because Jesus said at John 5:28,29 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.

    I have known Johnnie since I was 14 years old, I am 80 now. We went to Junior High and High School together. She was a true friend. Johnnie was the sister I never had. My Mother had 3 boys and me. I offer my deepest sympathy and condolences to the family members and friends. Please be assured that you can find comfort and hope in God's prayer.

    I wanted to express my sympathies to the Ivory family. I'm so sorry for your loss. During difficult times like this, we all need comfort. That comfort can come from the Bible, through prayer, from family and friends. But the ultimate source of comfort comes from Almighty God, Jehovah. 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 speaks, in part, of "the God of all comfort, 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."

    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: https://www.jw.org/finder?wtlocale=E&docid=502014163&srcid=share
