    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

    I would like to express 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.

    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.

    We're sorry to hear about your recent loss. Accept our sincere condolences. May you find strength from the words of Philippians 4:13 which says: "For all things I have the strength through the one who gives me power." What a loving God who cares about each one of us. 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 Ballard family, please accept my deepest condolences for the loss of your dear loved one Mr. Larry. 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. jw.org.

    Please accept my sincere condolences. Your family and friends can be a great source of comfort during such a grievous time. You can also find comfort from Jehovah the God of comfort. 2 Cor: 1: 3,4
