    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.

    My sincere condolences for the loss of your loved one. Death is truly an enemy and soon Jehovah God will eliminate it permanently and resurrect those lost in death. In fact, he yearns to do so. It is his promise and he cannot lie. May his promise bring you comfort. (Job 14:14,15)

    I'm very sorry for your loss. Losing someone we love dearly leaves the heart heavy. Please know that others care and that God heals the brokenhearted, Psalm 147:3. It takes time to heal and often times may be difficult to express how you feel b/c it hurts so much, but know that even at those times God can still hear you, Psalm 145:19

    I am so sorry to hear of your loss. However, please take comfort in knowing what happens at death. The Bible tells us at Ecclesiastes 9:5, “For the living are conscious that they will die; but as for the dead, they are conscious of nothing at all…” There is a book entitled "What does the Bible Really Teach?" Page 75 shows a wonderful picture depicting the Bible's promise of a resurrection. It also explains what this resurrection will mean for those who have died.
