    Life is fragile and so precious especially when we lose a loved one in death. May your family draw comfort in knowing that those sleeping in death are not suffering. The Bible’s wonderful hope found at Isaiah 25:8 tell us “He will swallow up death forever, and the sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces.” May this promise strengthen and comfort you during this time.

    Grief can be so hard, but our cherished memories help us cope. Hold tight to those memories….Lean on each other for support…. And look to God’s word the Bible, for comfort and strength. James 4:8 encourages; “Draw close to God, and He will draw close to you.”

    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.
