    Our warmest sympathies goes to you and yours in these difficult moments. May you find strength from the words of 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4 3 Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God. 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.

    To the family of Mrs. Sonja Elvera Holmes, 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 from 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 right there 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. That is good news from God, it gives us hope for the future and helps us to endure to pain and sorrow we feel now. May you continue to find comfort and peace from 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.

    To family and friends my deepest sympathies to you for the loss of your love one. Losing a loved one in death is very painful. The Bible offers a wonderful hope for our loved ones who have died. The Scriptures found at John 5:28,29 and Isaiah 26:19 promise that our loved ones who have died can live again right here on the earth! Psalms 37:29 May Jehovah (Psalms 83:18) the God of all comfort and tender mercies sustain you at this difficult time. 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 Learn more about the resurrection hope and how Jesus Christ is going to make God's wonderful promises come true at www.jw.org.

    My condolences to the family and friends of Mrs. Sonja Holmes. Death is truly an enemy and can be very hard to deal with but our wonderful Jehovah God gives us comfort in his word the Bible. Revelation 21:3,4 helps us to see that there will be a time when there will be no more pain, mourning, and crying because there’s also the hope that we will see our loved ones again due to the resurrection of both the righteous and unrighteous which is stated at Acts 24:15. Jehovah God is always there to give us the comfort we need to help us deal with many circumstances such as death so always know that you can confide in and rely on him. To find more comfort in the scriptures please visit our website at Jw.org.

    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. Holmes 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.
