    Extending my sincere condolences to the Thorpe Family. Death is an enemy and it's sting is painful. May the Bible's promise of a resurrection help cushion your grief so that you can get through this day and others to come. (John 5:28,29 and Isaiah 41:13) Sincerely Angela H

    We're so sorry to hear you are suffering the loss of your dear loved one. May you find strength and some comfort in the words found in Psalms 9:9, which reads: “Jehovah will become a secure refuge for the oppressed, A secure refuge in times of distress.” Our loving God cares about us and is ready to bring us comfort if we allow him (1John 5:14). He also has made the provision of a resurrection RIGHT HERE ON EARTH when it is restored into a beautiful paradise (Acts 24:15; Isaiah 55:11). Can you see yourself welcoming back to life your dear loved one? Find out more about this resurrection online at JW.ORG
