    I am truly sorry for your loss. However, John 5:25 says “the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who have paid attention will live”. Those who have died and are in God’s memory will be resurrected to a restored earth and have a hope of everlasting life. (Psalm 37:11, 29) I hope this brings you peace.

    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

    With heartfelt sympathy for your loss. I pray God gives you comfort to endure the pain of your loss. Certainly Jehovah God cares and hurts when we hurt. He yearns to restore life to those lost in death. He will do so in the very near future and loved ones lost will have the prospect of living forever as God purposed. Soon sickness and death will end. This is a sure promise and hope from God. Revelation 21:4

    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 that promise. Until that time, may you find comfort in this promise and treasure the special memories you shared.

    To the Reeves family, please accept my sincere sympathies. I'm very sorry for your loss. Losing a loved one in death can leave us with feelings of sadness and grief. But there is hope for the future. The Bible teaches that Almighty God is eager to raise the dead. The faithful man Job asked: “If a man dies, can he live again?” Job was speaking about waiting in the grave until the time came for God to remember him. He said to Jehovah: “You will call, and I will answer you. You will long for the work of your hands.” (Job 14:13-15) Just think! Jehovah longs for the time when he will bring those who have died back to life. Is it not heartwarming to learn that Jehovah feels that way about our dear loved ones we have lost in death, that he has a desire to resurrect such ones in the near future? No doubt that's a comforting thought. (John 5:28,29)

    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.
