    To the family, I am sincerely sorry for your loss. It's never easy to lose a loved one under any circumstance. Please be assured that Jehovah God is aware of your pain and he is near to the brokenhearted.(Pam 34:18) For the bible promises us that there will be a resurrection (John 5:28-29) and God will bring an end to Death once and for all (Rev 21:4). From that point on we will never have to feel the pangs of death again. I pray these words and scriptures bring you comfort.

    You have my deepest condolences. According to 1 Co 15:26 death is truly our enemy, but it also says that death will be done away with. You can also find comfort at Rev 21:4 where God will wipe the tears from our eyes and death will be no more. I hope you find these words of some source of comfort.

    My condolences to the family. Gain comfort from God's word during this very sad time. The bible at John 5:28,29 and Rev. 21:4 is so very encouraging to read from your own copy of the bible.

    we're so sorry to hear you are mourning the recent loss of your loved one. May you find strength and comfort from the words of Psalms 46:1 which reads: "God is our refuge and strength, A help that is readily found in times of distress." Our loving God is there for us if we ask for his help (1 John 5:14). He didn't intend for us to grow old and die. He thus has made the SURE promise of a resurrection RIGHT HERE ON EARTH when it is restored to a beautiful paradise (Psalms 37:9-11, 29; Acts 24:15; Isaiah 55;11). Can you see yourself welcoming back to life your loved ones? What a joy it will bring all of us. You can go online to JW.ORG and find out more about this resurrection.

    I am very sorry for your loss. May the love of family, friends, and Almighty God bring you comfort and support during your time of grief and afterward. (Ps. 83:18; Isaiah 41:10) May the hope of a resurrection on a restored earth bring you peace. (Acts 24:15; Psalm 37:11, 29)
