    We're so sorry to hear you are mourning the recent loss of your loved one. May you find strength and comfort from the words of Psalms 46:1 which reads: "God is our refuge and strength, A help that is readily found in times of distress." Our loving God is there for us if we ask for his help (1 John 5:14). 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.

    What a wonderful life your loved one had however this does not dull the sting of death. May your memories of the wonderful times that you shared with your loved one bring comfort to you and your family at this difficult time My condolences Isaiah 61:1, 2 says in part " HE sent me to bind up the broken hearted and to comfort those who mourn"
