    I know Robert, Kenneth and the Riggins family and friends have saddened hearts because of losing Lizzie recently in death. So I want to share this beautiful scripture where our heavenly father, Jehovah, (Psalm 83:18) promises us that he is going to do away with man's greatest enemy, death. Rev. 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." When our loved ones fall asleep in death, the pain and grief seems unbearable. Our loving God Jehovah understands how we feel and he comforts us by means of his word the Bible. ." Jehovah invites you to throw all your burdens on him and he will sustain you in your time of grief. (Psalm 34:18) For more comforting scriptures please visit: http://bit.ly/1K38EFt It has provided me with many more scriptures that have given me comfort, strengthened my faith and helped me find the answer to Why? I know it will do the same for you. God's kingdom that Jesus taught us to pray for at Matt. 6: 9, 10 will bring about these wonderful promises including the resurrection. (John 5: 28, John 6:40, John 11:23-25) Isaiah 26:19 "Your dead will live......And the earth will let those powerless in death come to life." Isaiah 25:8 "He will swallow up death forever. For Jehovah himself has spoken it." It is my prayer these scriptures will give you comfort in your grief. Again, I offer my sincere condolences to the family.

    I am very sorry for your loss. I would like to share a scripture that I hope brings your family some comfort. "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." -Rev. 21:4. What heartwarming words! God has promised us that soon death will be no more and we will soon be able to be reunited with our loved ones again. What the Bible promises will come true, and you can enjoy its fulfillment.

    You have my deepest condolences. May the love of family, friends, and Almighty God comfort you during your time of grief and afterward. (Ps. 83:18; Isa. 41:10) If you seek God, you will find Him because “He is not far off from each one of us”. (Acts 17:27) May the hope of a resurrection on a restored earth bring you peace. (Acts 24:15; Psalm 37:11, 29)

    I have you in my thoughts since it is the one year anniversary of Ms. Lizzie's death. I keep the Riggins family in my prayers. I'm quite sure this past year has been difficult adjusting without your precious, Ms. Lizzie. Words are so limited that can give comfort, so I would like to share with you beautiful scripture where our loving heavenly Father, (Psalm 83:18), wants you to throw all your burdens on him and he will sustain you in your time of grief because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7, Psalm 34:18 None of us are guaranteed tomorrow, but we are all guaranteed a resurrection. Our precious savior, Jesus, promises us at John 6: 40; “For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who recognizes the Son and exercises faith in him should have everlasting life, and I will resurrect him on the last day”. And again at: John 5: 28; “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…” And also at John 11:23-25; “Jesus said to her: “I am the resurrection and the life.” The one who exercises faith in me, even tho he dies, will come to life.” I pray that Jesus’s promise to reunite us with our loved ones on resurrection day will carry you through the difficult days ahead and gradually replace your tears of grief with tears of joy as you reflect on your precious memories of happier times with Doris. Job asked at Job 14:14; “If a man dies, can he live again?” Job answers at Job 14:15; “You (Jehovah) will call and I will answer.” Just like Job, we can have confidence in the resurrection hope. Acts 17:31-34 tells us: Because he (Jehovah) has set a day on which he (Jehovah) purposes to judge the inhabited earth in righteousness by a man (Jesus) whom he (Jehovah) has appointed, and he (Jehovah) has provided a guarantee to all men by resurrecting him (Jesus) from the dead." Now when they heard of a resurrection of the dead, some began to scoff, while others said: "We will hear you again about this." So Paul left them, but some men joined him and became believers. Among them were Dionysius, who was a judge of the court of the Areopagus, and a woman named Damaris, and others besides them."" Isn't it wonderful that death is not the end of things, but Jehovah has provided us with the resurrection? For more comforting scriptures please visit: http://bit.ly/1K38EFt. It has given me hope, strengthened my faith and helped me find the answer to Why? I know it will do the same for you. John 17:3 I pray you will find comfort reading the above scriptures in your personal Bible and to please watch this beautiful video (song 144) entitled “Keep Your Eyes on the Prize” https://tv.jw.org/#en/video/VODChildren/pub-pksn_24_VIDEO or see JW.ORG.
