    My sincere condolences for the loss of your loved one. Death is truly an enemy and soon Jehovah God will eliminate it permanently and resurrect those lost in death. In fact, he yearns to do so. It is his promise and he cannot lie. May his promise bring you comfort. (Job 14:14,15)

    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.”

    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 would like to offer my condolences to the family of Mr. Davenport and may God be a refuge and strength in your time of sorrow.(Psalms 46:1)

    My condolences go out to the family. As you prepare to lay your loved one to rest, may you find comfort from your Bibles at Psalms 34:18. “ HE” is close to the brokenhearted and crushed in spirit. Nahum 1:7 tells us GOD is good, a stronghold in the day of distress. He is mindful of those seeking refuge in him.

    My sincere sympathies to the Davenport family. I am very sorry for your loss. Please know that God is eager to do away with death. He hates death and views it as an enemy. (1 Corinthians 15:26) As an enemy of God, we can be sure that death will be conquered and will not last forever. Almighty God, Jehovah, will undo death by means of the resurrection hope. (John 5:28, 29) He yearns to bring back those who are in his memory and to see them live on earth again. (Job 14:14,15) What this can mean for you is a real hope of being reunited with your dear loved ones.

    We are so much affected when we heard of the death of your loved one. Please accept our condolences. Going through something like this will take a toll on your heart for the rest of your life. However, there is comfort that can be gained from looking into the words of comfort that our creator Jehovah God provides in his word the Bible. I will share a few with you. The listed scriptures give us insight as to what will happen in the near future. There are many more that explain why we die and what hope we have. Revelation 21:3-4; Isaiah 65:17 and John 5:29. Mary

    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.
