    I am so sorry for the pain and emptiness of heart you must feel at this time. Death is certainly an enemy that take those we love. (1 Corinthians 15:26) Soon the Sovereign Lord Jehovah (Psalm 83:18) will remove all pain, suffering and death forever. Giving the opportunity to life on a peaceful earth with the welcoming of those from the memorial tombs. (John 5:28 & 29; Acts 24:15) Yes, Jehovah God cares for us. Please visit for more information to warm your hearts.

    We're sorry to hear about your recent loss. May you find strength from the words of Philippians 4:13 which says: "For all things I have the strength through the one who gives me power." What a loving God who cares about each one of us. 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.
