    Our 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: http://www.jw.org/en/publications/books/dead-live-again-tract/dead-live-again/

    To family and friends my deepest sympathies to you for the loss of your love. 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". 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 Jesus is going to make God's wonderful promises come true at jw.org. May the God of all comfort and tender mercies sustain you at this difficult time. 2 Corinthians 1:3,4

    My sympathies to the Rosser family. I'm so sorry for your loss. May you find comfort in knowing that one day soon "death will be no more." (Revelation 21:4) Not only will we not experience death, but we have the hope of being reunited with our loved ones we have lost to death. This will take place by means of the resurrection hope, mentioned in the Bible at John 5:28,29. Imagine how you'll feel when your dear loved one, Carrie, is brought back to life, in a beautiful new paradise on earth! It's not a mere dream, but a future that will soon be realized. (Revelation 21:5)

    Tp the Rosser Family We are sorry to hear about the passing of Carrier Rosser. Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire family. Yes we all can relate to losing some one special in death. Seeing that we all are a part of God's earthly family, we are all related. So on this day we join you in grieving over the ;lost of a special person. How good it is to be able to draw comfort from the scriptures that speaks about the future hope for Carrie, and to billions of others who have fallen asleep in death. From the scriptures God reveals this promise. He tells us that soon He would use His great powers to restore life back to those who have died. ( John 5:28-29) This scripture serves as a personal guarantee that Carrie, and billions of others will live again. Then to provide further comfort for all grieving hearts, God has preserved nine accounts in the Bible that speaks about this wonderful arrangement from God. Here is just one such example recorded at Acts 9:36-42. I would like to take this time to encourage all to see how the verses apply to Carrie, and to billions of others who await this future blessing from God. So please keep this promise from God near your hearts at all times. Remember that we have God's personal promise. Yes it is impossible for God to lie.( Titus 1:2)

    To the family, I just want to express my sincere condolences to the loss of your love one. Death is a powerful hurt “and the last enemy” that plague all of us. (1 Corinthians 15:26) But there is a hope for your love one. The scriptures tell us that there is going to be a resurrection and Jesus, under the direction of his heavenly Father, Jehovah, is going to bring those out of the memorial tombs. (John 5:28,29; Psalms 83:18) So, even though mourning is something we will all do when death occurs, please remember that your love one is safe in God’s memory. Again, please accept my condolences, and if there is anything you would like to know about Jehovah, his Son, Jesus, and what they are planning on doing in the future, please visit our website at www.jw.org.

    My deepest condolences to all the love ones of the dearly departed. The words found at 2 Corinthians chapter 1 verses 3 and 4 were especially comforting to me and my family during the loss of our parents and dear loved ones. It says, "Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and 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 comfort that we receive from God." May these words strengthen you too.
