    My deepest the sympathy to the family for your loss. Losing a loved one is something that we will never get used to, because death is unnatural. But we have the wonderful future hope of living again, free from all the causes of death and the heartache it brings. (John 5:28,29 - Revelation 21:3,4) May THE GOD OF ALL COMFORT, JEHOVAH, friends, family, prayers and the many memories help you through this difficult time. 2Corinthians I:3,4 - Psalm 83:18

    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.
