    We don't know what to say except that we love you. We can't understand exactly how you feel, but Jehovah does and will keep raising you up. We hope that our prayers will help a little. Revelation chapter 21 verse 4 reads; And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. Please visit www.jw.org to find out more about Jehovah's plan for obedient mankind.

    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.

    I was sorry to hear about Julia's passing. I remember the insightful conversations with her and her passion to justice and equality during the 60's. Although I know there are no words that I can use beyond I am sorry, I hope it will give you some comfort to know that God shares your grief and wants you to lean on him to ease that grief. When you lose a loved one in death pain and grief are something we all understand. It will help if you go to God’s Word for comfort. (2 Corinthians 1:3, 4). The Bible helps us to understand how God and Jesus feel about death. Jesus, felt the pain of losing someone in death. (John 14:9) When he was in Jerusalem, Jesus used to visit Lazarus and his sisters, Mary and Martha, who lived in the nearby town of Bethany. They became close friends. The Bible says: “Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus.” (John 11:5) When Lazarus died Jesus joined Lazarus’ relatives and friends as they grieved over his death. Then, the Bible tells us, “Jesus gave way to tears.” (John 11:33, 35) Did Jesus’ grief mean that he had no hope? Not at all. In fact, Jesus knew that something wonderful was about to happen. (John 11:3, 4) Still, he felt the same pain and sorrow that we feel when someone we love dies. In a way, Jesus’ grief can encourage us. It teaches us that Jesus and his Father, hate death. But remember the Bible shows us that Jehovah is able to fight and overcome death! Imagine how happy Lazarus relatives must have been when Jesus resurrected him. The account of Lazarus also teaches us that the resurrection is a reality, not a story made up by man. It will be a wonderful time when there will be no more death and when we can look forward to seeing our loved ones again as it states in John 5:28-29. Think of the happiness you will feel seeing Julia and all of your loved ones again. God has given us sound reasons for hope in the resurrection. We have his word that the dead will rise, standing up again to life. And his purpose regarding those asleep in death is sure to be fulfilled. (Isaiah 55:11; Luke 18:27) In fact, God has already shown his power to raise the dead as shown in the bible. Faith in God’s promises for raising the dead by means of his Son, Jesus Christ, can help you during those dark times when you miss her and keep in mind what a great joy it will be to see her again at a time when there will be no more pain, sickness or death as outlined in Revelation. 21:3-4.
