    To the family of Ms. Shirley Hawkins Davis, I am so sorry to hear that your loved one has passed. You have my deepest sympathy and condolences. May you find comfort and peace in God's word the Bible, it contains information that can help us in our times of pain and sorrow. For example at John 5:28,29, it says that there will be a resurrection of our dear loved ones and we will be able to see them again alive on this earth, and they will be in good health in body and in mind. Also at Revelation 21:3,4, it says that there will be no more death or pain on this earth in the near future. This is good news from God, it gives us hope for the future and helps us to endure the pain and sorrow we feel now. May you continue to find comfort and hope in God's word. For more information please see www.jw.org then see Bible teachings or contact me at P.O. Box 367 McComb, Ms. 39649.

    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.

    Dear Family, Please accept my condolences. Our Heavenly Father, Jehovah, understands our sorrow. He doesn’t want us hurting. In fact, in His Word, the Bible, He gives us encouragement. It’s explained in His Word about why death and suffering happen. Additionally, He helps us to understand that this was not meant to be. Acts 24:15, in the Bible, notes that there will be a resurrection! Revelation 21:4 mentions that our Creator promises that death, mourning, and pain will be things of the past. What’s more, 1 Corinthians 15:26 confirms that death will be brought to nothing. Imagine that! A world in which there’ll be no more death. Can you picture it? I am encouraging you to take heart! Currently, Ms. Davis is now resting. But, in the very near future, she will be raised---resurrected---and will have the prospect of everlasting life here, on earth. That's a PROMISE directly from OUR CREATOR! Isn't that wonderful, good news? I hope these words of encouragement have done for you what I have intended for them to do. And, that is, to provide you all with some comfort, peace, and strength.
