    May family and friends find comfort in God's promise of a resurrection of all those lost in death that are in his limitless memory. His promise is a guarantee because it is impossible for God to lie. God will wipe every tear from eyes and death, mourning, pain and sorrow will be things of the past. (Revelation 21:4).

    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!

    I would like to express my sympathy to the family of Marie Carten Ricks. I am sorry to hear of your loss. The death of a love one is a painful experience. Our Heavenly Father is well aware of the hurt you feel. He promises in His Word the Bible to remove pain, suffering, and death (Isaiah 25:8 and Revelation 21:3,4). We know that Almighty Jehovah God has not only the power but also yearns to fulfill this promise. Until that time, may you find comfort in this promise and treasure the special memories you shared.

    My sincere sympathies to the Ricks family. I'm very sorry for your loss. My thoughts are with you during this period of mourning. A comforting thought at times like these can soothe the heart. The Bible reveals that it is God’s purpose to restore our dear loved ones back to life by means of a resurrection to a paradise earth, where sickness and “death will be no more.” (Revelation 21:4) Jesus said: “The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” (John 5:28,29) Imagine seeing your dear loved ones again and being reunited with them. God has promised to make that a reality for his faithful ones.

    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.

    To the Ricks family, please accept my deepest condolences for the loss of your dear loved one Ms. Marie Carten. Death is our enemy, the scripture at 1 Corinthians 15:26 shows that this enemy will soon be brought to nothing. May this scripture comfort you during this most difficult time.
