    I would like to express my condolences in the loss of your dear loved one, also some hope from the bible. The bible promised that we can see them again in the coming resurrection according to [John 5:28-29] and [Acts 24:15]. We find further hope in [Isaiah 25:8] and [Revelations 21:3-5] which says in part that Jehovah God will wipe out every tear from our eyes and death will be no more, because God will swallow up death forever. I hope these scriptures will be of some comfort. With Deep Sympathy.

    To the Family: The loss of a loved one causes so much pain and grief. It is at a time like this we appreciate the love of family and friends to comfort us. May your family and friends be there for you in the days, weeks and months ahead of you. Find strength and hope also in the promises found at Daniel 12:2; Acts 9:36-41 and Revelation 21:3-5.

    May the God who “binds up the broken-hearted” and “comforts all who mourn” sustain your family during this challenging time.- Isaiah 61:1,2.

    We're so sorry to hear you are suffering the loss of your dear loved one. May you find strength and some comfort in the words found in Psalms 9:9, which reads: “Jehovah will become a secure refuge for the oppressed, A secure refuge in times of distress.” 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 provision of a resurrection RIGHT HERE ON EARTH when it is restored into a beautiful paradise (Acts 24:15; Isaiah 55:11). Can you see yourself welcoming back to life your dear loved one? Find out more about this resurrection online at JW.ORG
