    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 Nahum 1:7 which reads: ”Jehovah is good, a stronghold in the day of distress. He is mindful of those seeking refuge in him.” 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

    Please accept my condolences on the loss of your loved one. I have found the words at John 5:28 and 29 to be very encouraging. These words offer a promise of a resurrection, the hope of seeing your loved one again. Until that time comes, go to God in prayer. He will give you the strength that you need to make it through this difficult time (Isaiah 41:10).
