    My condolences to the family and friends of Mr.Hodge Smith. Death is truly an enemy and can be very hard to deal with but our wonderful God, Jehovah, gives us comfort in his word the Bible. Revelation 21:3,4 gives us the hope that there will be a time when there will be no more pain, mourning, and crying because there will come a time when we will see our loved ones again due to the resurrection of both the righteous and unrighteous which is stated at Acts 24:15. Jehovah God is always there to give us the comfort we need to help us deal with many circumstances such as death so always know that you can always confide in and rely on him. To find more comfort in the scriptures please visit our website at Jw.org.

    God gives us strength even when we feel like we can’t go any further. Mrs. Smith, when I ask you about something or someone, you always tell me that “all is well.” That’s a true statement knowing Mr. Hodge is not suffering and that he’s resting in peace. We pray that God continues to strengthen you and your family believing that you will see each other again. We love you all.

    Dear Family, Please accept my condolences regarding your cherished one. I know the sorrow you feel right now is like a day without sun. Pain from the death of a loved one causes an agonizing sting. We can’t concentrate, we’re paralyzed, and we can’t focus on anything. Seems like all is lost at the thought of never seeing them again. But, TAKE HEART! God’s Word, the Bible says, this is not the end! Acts 24:15 notes that there will be a resurrection. YES! Again—we’ll see those whom we’ve loved and regarded with tender affection! Revelation 21:4 tells us that death will be no more, And that we won’t cry or mourn as we’ve done before. So, my hope is that I’ve encouraged you through my words of condolence. Please visit JW.org for further reference. ~ Mela Fleurs

    To the family, it is so sad to hear that your loved one has passed. You have our deepest sympathy and condolences. May you find comfort and peace in God's word the Bible. It contains information that can help us in our times of pain and sorrow. For example, at John 5:28,29, it says that there will be a resurrection of our dear loved ones, and we will be able to see them again alive right here on this earth, and they will be in good health in body and in mind. Also at Revelation 21:3,4, it says that there will be no more death or pain on this earth in the near future. All of this is good news from God, it gives us hope for the future and helps us to endure the pain and sorrow we feel now. May you continue to find comfort and hope in God's word. For more information please see www.jw.org then see Bible teachings or contact me at P.O. Box 367 McComb, Ms. 39649.

    To family and friends my deepest sympathies to you for the loss of your love one. Losing a loved one in death is very painful. 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 and Isaiah 26:19 promise that our loved ones who have died can live again by means of the Resurrection. Learn more about the Resurrection hope and many more blessings for mankind at www.jw.org.

    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). See and imagine yourself welcoming back to life your dear loved one? Find out more about this resurrection online at JW.ORG
