    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.

    James, if you get the opportunity to read this posting, it's been a whole lot of years since we've seen each other. I saw this , and am adjusting my schedule to be there. We don't know exactly what to say except that we love you. We can't understand exactly how you feel, but Jehovah does and will keep raising you up. We hope that our prayers will help a little. God is eager to do it again. 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. Please visit our website It is a comprehensive website, easy to navigate, and contains lots of information designed to draw us closer to our loving Heavenly Father, Jehovah God.

    I see this and still find it so very hard to believe. Joyce was a great friend. She was my first friend growing up and although I’ll always cherish her memory her kindness will always be missed. Rest well my friend. I know you’ve found peace and rest. I love you.

    God will sustain you with his "right hand of righteousness" during this difficult time and through each passing day. Isaiah 41:10 says:..."I am with you. Do not be anxious, for I am your God. I will fortify you, yes, I will help you, I will really hold on to you with my right hand of righteousness." Isaiah 41:13; I "am grasping your right hand, the One [God] saying to you,...'I will help you.'" Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! (Psalm 34:18; Psalm 147:3)
