    To The Maclin Family,I am truly sorry for your loss. I know you have many wonderful memories of your time with Demartifer. When you reflect on the memories you shared they will bring a smile to your heart. I know this is a difficult time, but the Bible gives us a wonderful future hope , Revelation 21:4 says death will be no more. The Bible promises we will live in a world free of death. This is an awesome future promise made by Almighty God to obedient mankind. May you have peace.

    We're sorry to hear about your recent loss. Accept our sincere condolences. 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.
