    To the family: Losing a loved one is so painful because death is not natural and we will never get used to it. But, ALMIGHTY GOD gives us the hope of seeing our loved ones again through a resurrection right here on the earth.(John 5:28,29) What a wonderful hope to look forward to! May you find comfort in the Bible's promise at Revelation 21:3,4, which states "death will be no more." May the love of our CREATOR, family and friends carry you through this difficult time.

    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
