We can look forward to a time when as Revelation 21:3, 4 tells us, death will be no more. How wonderful it will be.

    When we are separated from our loved ones b/c of death, it brings many tears and much pain b/c it hurts. The stinging pain (Hosea 13:14) death brings, our Heavenly Father Jehovah (Psalm 83:18) will remove, (1 Corinthians 15:26..death will be brought to nothing) May you take comfort in Gods promise..there shall be a resurrection, Acts 24:15. Please accept my condolences

    In your time of Sorrow, Let not your heart be troubled, because in the Father’s House Are Many Mansions, John 14: 1-2 James was a Great Coworker and Friend no matter when you see him he always had a Kind Word And Smile, May God ease your hour of sorrow and surround you with His love, And may it bring you strength to know our Father’s house above where His Son has set aside Special places near Him for His loved ones to abide. When a soul that we love takes flight on the wings of a dive, we grieve, but we trust and believe there is a place overflowing with grace where every soul is at peace and all weeping has ceased.. And when that soul looks down from above, all they see is a legacy of love. With Out Deepest Sympathy, Dianne Brown Wanda Daniels Carla Bynam

    To the Family, so sorry for your loss. Hope you will be comforted in knowing that James has the prospect of being resurrected, healthy (in the flesh), to Paradise Earth just as Jehovah God has promised. In fact , the vast majority will enjoy everlasting life right here on earth as God had intended from the beginning. God's Kingdom will do this under the rule of Jesus Christ.

    I want to offer my condolences to the Grimes family and friends. It is a painful thing to lose a love one in death. Hebrews 4:15 says, For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tested in all respects as we have, but without sin." Yes, Jesus endured sufferings when on earth, including the pain of losing a love one (John 11:33,35,38). It has been promised from our God of comfort that sickness, pain, and death will be removed (Isaiah 33:24; 1 Corinthians 15:26; Revelation 21:4,5). An additional promise given is that all our loved ones in the memorial tombs will be awaken from asleep in death to enjoy life as our loving Creator purposed (Isaiah 26:19; Psalms 145:16). Allow these words to keep comforting you

    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.

    May Jehovah the God of all comfort be with the family. Psalms 83:18
  • Monday, May 20, 2019
    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.

    My deepest sympathies to the Grimes family. I'm so sorry for your loss. Not just any words will help ease your pain during this trying time of loss. My heart truly goes out to you. God's promises provide us comfort and a beautiful hope for the future. Isaiah 25:8 says, "He will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces...For Jehovah himself has spoken it." Knowing too that God has locked your dear loved one in his loving memory, and yearns to resurrect them is a comforting thought. (John 5:28,29; Job 14:14,15) My prayers are with you at this time.

    I would like to extend my sympathy to the family. I am sorry to hear of your loss. May you find comfort in knowing that our loving Heavenly Father promises in His Word the Bible to remove pain, suffering, and death (Revelation 21:3,4 and Isaiah 25:8). Until that time, may you find comfort in this promise and treasure the special memories you shared.

    We're so sorry to hear you are mourning the recent loss of your loved one. May you find strength and comfort from the words of Psalms 46:1 which reads: "God is our refuge and strength, A help that is readily found in times of distress." Our loving God is there for us if we ask for his 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.
