    Dear Simmons family, I wanted to give you my deepest sympathies. The death of a loved one causes us deep pain. At Jeremiah 31:13, Almighty God has promised, "I will change their mourning into exultation. I will comfort them and give them joy instead of their grief." No doubt you look forward to the fulfillment of that promise. You can fully rely on "the God of tender mercies and the God of all comfort" to give you the strength and endurance to cope during this difficult time. (2 Corinthians 1:3) At John 5:28,29 Jehovah has promised us the beautiful hope of the resurrection, the hope of being reunited with our loved ones who have fallen asleep in death. No doubt this is a promise that we look forward to in the near future. If you would like to see what the reality of the resurrection can mean for you personally, please take a look at the following video:

God promises that soon He will remove all causes of pain, suffering, and death (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.

    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.”

    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.

    Please accept my condolences for the loss of your loved one. Because we all at some point experience this loss I know the pain of heart you must feel. However the Bible gives us comfort. It tells us how the Almighty GOD is the source of life (Ps 36:9). This assures us that we can look forward to seeing our loved ones again. He is the one who gave life to all living creatures so He is certainly capable of restoring life to someone who has died. I hope this brings some comfort to your family as it did mine. May you have peace.
