    Your loved one will never have to face the last enemy, death ever again. In the meantime, his acts of faith live on until he stands up alive and whole in the Paradise. Robert was already familiar with the promises that are in store for those who are obedient, and faithfully serve Jehovah God. he knew that Jehovah hates death.; He views it as an enemy. (1 Corinthians 15:26) He has a longing to conquer that enemy, to undo death by means of the resurrection. He yearns to bring back those who are in his memory and to see them live on earth again.-Job 14:14,15. You can follow along and learn more about how He plans to accomplish this at our website

    As a Bible student I know that Brother Green would want his family and friends to know that Jehovah has taken the sting out of death by way of HIS only begotten Son Jesus. So while Brother Green is sleeping in death we the living want to do all we can to follow the Ways of Jesus, to love one another,and most of all to get to know the Most High God. Revelation 21:3-4 I am deeply sorry for the loss of your beloved one.

    Our condolences goes to you and yours in this most difficult time . May you find strength from the words of 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4 which reads: “Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, 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, and is ready to help us in 9ur m9st difficult moments if we allow him to. (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.

    God cares for the brokenhearted; Psalm 34:18 assures us that he is close to them. Psalm 147:3 says: "He heals the brokenhearted; He binds up their wounds." God strengthens us by giving us "the power beyond what is normal" to make it through each passing day. Isaiah 12:2 assures us that God is our "strength" and our "might." Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! (Psalm 36:7; 1 Peter 5:7)
