    I'm very sorry for the loss of your beloved Bruddy. While death can bring many tears and pain and is hard to endure, please know God(Isaiah 12:2) has promised to wipe away your tears and swallow up death forever, Isaiah 25:8. Be assured at times when we cant put our feelings into words he still hears us, Psalm 65:2. May Christs promise of the resurrection comfort you, John 5:26-29..

    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
