    Please accept my sincere regrets for your loss. The bible does provide us with comfort and hope in times such as these. Revelation 21:4 says that God will wipe every tear from our eyes and death and pain will be no more. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

    My heart felt sympathy goes out to you family. It's always hard to lose a loved one. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. We only saw each other a few times but, share d so much laughter. We never got around to the sewing lessons that she was going to give me. Blessings to you all family, ITMNOJ. May God rest her soul.

    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.
