    My deepest sympathy on the loss of your love one Mr. Willie May. Please know that you are not forgotten. Notice what assurances Jehovah God gives you at Isaiah 41:10. "Do not be afraid for I am with you. Do not be anxious, for I am your God. I will fortify you, yes, I will help you." You can have faith in those words because God does not and cannot lie Titus 1:2. 🙏

    To the family, I express my deepest condolences for the loss of your love one. In the Bible, Jehovah God expresses death as a "sting." (Psalms 83:18; 1 Corinthians 15:55,56) So this means that behind death, there is a painful hurt. He also knows what it is like to experience losing a love one as "he did not spare his own son but handed him over for us all." (Romans 8:32) But soon God will do something amazing. "All those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out." (John 5:28,29) Jehovah will use his Son to bring back all our dead loved ones to life! What a joy that will be! There, God "will wipe out every tear from (our) eyes and death will be no more neither mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore."(Revelation 21:4) So yes, although experiencing the temporary sting of death, we will have the prospect of joy living on a paradise earth free of death forever! A wonderful website with more information on this subject is This is where more Bible truths await us all. Please visit the website in hopes to add more comfort to your hearts. (2 Corinthians 1:3) Again, sorry for your loss.

    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.

    We can look forward to the day when there will be no more sickness and death. Revelation 21:4 says: "And he [God] will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." God cares for the brokenhearted; Psalm 34:18 assures us that he is close to them. Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! (Psalm 36:7; Psalm 147:3)
