    Our deepest condolences to all the love ones of the dearly departed. The words found at 2 Corinthians chapter 1 verses 3 and 4 were especially comforting to our family during the loss of our parents and dear loved ones. It says, "Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and 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 comfort that we receive from God." May these words strengthen you too.

    To family and friends my deepest sympathies to you for the loss of your love one. The death of a loved one brings tears and pain. Even Jesus wept over the loss of a loved one. John 11:33,35,38 It is comforting to know that the Bible at John 5:28,29 promise that our loved ones can live again by means of the Resurrection. Isaiah 26:19 says "Your dead will live.. the earth will let those powerless in death will come to life". What a wonderful hope of seeing your one again!

    With heartfelt sympathy for your loss. I pray God gives you comfort to endure the pain of your loss. Certainly Jehovah God cares and hurts when we hurt. He yearns to restore life to those lost in death. He will do so in the very near future and loved ones lost will have the prospect of living forever as God purposed. Soon sickness and death will end. This is a sure promise and hope from God. Revelation 21:4

    Dear McGowan family, you have my utmost sympathies. The death of a loved one causes deep pain. There is no feeling like it. But soon that grief will be replaced with joy. At Jeremiah 31:13, Almighty God has promised, "I will change their mourning into exultation. I will comfort them and give them joy instead of their grief." No doubt you look forward to the fulfillment of that promise. Until then, you can fully rely on "the God of tender mercies and the God of all comfort" to give you the strength and endurance to cope during this difficult time. (2 Corinthians 1:3)

    I am sorry for your loss. We have a sure hope of seeing our love ones again, because Jesus said at John 5:28,29 Do not be amazed at this for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.

    To the Family of Janet Downing McGowan: I am sorry to hear of your loss. I cannot imagine your pain and sadness at this time. May Jehovah God comfort and support you during this time of sorrow. God has promised to one day put an end to death forever (Isaiah 25:8). Jesus also showed what He will do in the future. The Bible shows that in the future those who have fallen asleep in death will be brought back to life on a paradise earth (John 5:28 and Luke 23:43). Until that time comes may you treasure the special memories you shared.

    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).
