    To the family and friends: please, accept our heartfelt sympathy in your recent loss.  May you find strength and comfort from the words of  Nahum 1:7 Which reads: “Jehovah is good, a stronghold in the day of distress. He is mindful of those seeking refuge in him.” Yes, our loving God is there for us if we allow him to help (1 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.

    We don't know 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. In the meantime, please remember that Jehovah God hates death. He calls it an enemy. First Corinthians 15:26 reads; "And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing." 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.

    We can look forward to the day when there will be no more sickness and death. Revelation 21:4 says:..."He [God] will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." God cares for the brokenhearted; Psalm 34:18 assures us that he is close to them, please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! (Psalm 36:7; Psalm 147:3)
