    We're so sorry you are mourning the loss of your dear loved one. Not much can soothe the pain this sorrow brings, but we hope the words of Psalms 34:18 can help some. It reads: “Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit.” We can rely on our loving God to provide comfort in these troublesome times. He also has made the sure promise of a resurrection RIGHT HERE ON EARTH when it is restored into a beautiful paradise! (Acts 24:15; Psalms 37:9-11, 29). This is Sure to come because everything God says, he does without fail (Isaiah 55:11). Find out more about this resurrection online at JW.ORG

    My condolences to the family of Mr.Bobie Lee Johnson. Death is truly an enemy but there is comfort in God's word the bible. Revelation 21:4 gives not only a hope but a promise, of a time when there will be no more death, mourning, or pain. Acts 24:15 also gives the hope of being able to see our loved ones again through the resurrection. What a great time that would be. There are so many comforting scriptures in this trying time in God's word the bible and if you would like to know more comforting information, please visit our website at
