    To the family of Mr. Rivers. " Go promise through his so Jesus Christ, that one day there will be no more suffering, no more outcry of pain, and no more dying. All these things will be things of the past". (Rev. 21:4) I hope and pray that will bring you a moment of peace and love, from my family to your family.

James 5:11; God "is very tender in affection [very compassionate] and merciful" Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! (Psalm 36:7; 1 Peter 5:7)

    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 Nahum 1:7 which reads: ”Jehovah is good, a stronghold in the day of distress. He is mindful of those seeking refuge in him.” 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
