    May I offer my sincere condolences for your loss. May your hearts find comfort in God's Word where it states: "He will swallow up death forever, and the Lord will wipe the tears from all faces" (Isaiah 25:8). Almighty God promises to awaken our loved ones to a world of true peace with no sickness (Isaiah 33:24), and no more troubles (Revelation 21:4) throughout eternity (Psalm 37:29). May your hearts find comfort and hope in God’s promises and for more comfort, please visit jw.org.
