    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're so sorry to hear you are grieving the loss of your dear loved one. May you find strength and some comfort in the words found in Nahum 1:7 which reads: ”Jehovah is good, a stronghold in the day of distress. He is mindful of those seeking refuge in him.” Our loving God cares about us and is ready to bring us comfort if we allow him (1John 5:14). He also has made the provision of a resurrection RIGHT HERE ON EARTH when it is restored into a beautiful paradise. Can you see yourself welcoming back to life your dear loved one? Find out more about this resurrection online at JW.ORG
