    I’m sorry to hear of the loss of your love one William and my deepest condolences are with your family. Although this one of the most difficult times of your lives it’s comforting to your family to know William have the hope of a resurrrction. Our Heavenly Father Jehovah made this promise in the Bible at John 5;28,29 and Acts 24:15. The resurrection hope is based on Jehovah having his son Jesus come and die as a ransom. During this time of sorrow our Heavenly Father realize the pain you’re experiencing and wrote these words of encouragement to you found at Psalms 34:18. “Jehovah is close to those brokered hearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit”. Therefore, Jehovah expresses an invitation to you at James 4:8 say, “Draw close to God and he will draw close to you because he cares for you and wants to stregthen and sustain your famliy during this most difficult time.

    To the Fleming family. Sorry to hear about the passing of William. I worked with him the whole 25 yrs he was at Overnite(UPS FREIGHT). I was also 1 of the representatives who came out to his house to check on him when he got messed up on his medicine and didn't show up for work or answer his phone. I just heard of his passing this past Friday, for I was on vacation the week of. He was one of the closest friends I had at work, and I loved to cut up with him. He made it easy to go in every night and was always smiling and happy. I had called him back in the winter and talked about trying to get up there and take him out to dinner. I hate I never made it. Know the family will surely miss him, because I sure miss his smile and laughing at work.

    We are saddened to know you are grieving the recent loss of your loved one. May you find comfort in the words found in Psalms 34:18 which reads: “ Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit.” Our loving God cares about us and is ready to bring us comfort if we allow him (1John 5:14). He also has made the SURE promise of a resurrection RIGHT HERE ON EARTH when it is restored into a beautiful paradise (Acts 24:15 Isaiah 55;11). See and imagine yourself welcoming back to life your dear loved one? Find out more about this resurrection online at JW.ORG

    We can look forward to the day when there will be no more sickness and death. Revelation 21:4 says:..."He [God] will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." God cares for the brokenhearted; Psalm 34:18 assures us that he is close to them.Please accept my sincere condolences, Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! (Psalm 36:7; 1 Peter 5:7)
