    The passing of your love one Buddy is one of life’s most painful experiences and my deepest condolences are with your family. Our Heavenly Father Jehovah is keenly aware of the passing of Buddy and have provided for him the hope of a resurrection. God sent his son Jesus who gave his life in order for Buddy to have this marvelous hope in the resurrection. This hope is outlined in the Bible at Acts24:15 which states, “there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and unrighteous” and at that time god will remember Buddy and bring him back. So, draw close to Jehovah and he will draw close to you (James 4:8) because he will give you the strength during this time of sorrow and sadness.

    Please accept my deepest condolences for the loss of your dear love one. A scripture that has given me much comfort is Revelation 21:4 which promises that one day death will be no more. I hope this scripture brings comfort to your family during this difficult time.

    We deeply feel for what you and the family are going through. At times, there isn't much that can soothe the pain this grief brings, but you may find some comfort in the words of Psalms 9:9 which reads: "Jehovah will become a secure refuge for the oppressed, A secure refuge in times of distress." Yes, our Loving God can help if we allow him to (1John 5:14). He also has made the SURE promise of a resurrection right here on earth, when it is restored to a Paradise (Acts 24:15; Psalms 37:9-11,29). No, not just a dream, but for a certainty he will do it, for Isaiah 55:11 shows us that everything he says, he accomplishes without fail. You can find out more online at JW.ORG.
