    My sincere condolences are with the Cherry family for the loss of your love one Christon. His passing is a very painful and devastating experience. However, you can be comforted in knowing he have the hope of a resurrection. Our Heavenly Father Jehovah provided the resurrection hope when he sent his son Jesus who gave his life for this purpose. The resurrection hope is confirmed at John 5:28,29 and Acts 24:15. Furthermore, the sadness in your hearts our Heavenly Father can see and said this to you “Jehovah is close to the broken hearted; He is saved those who are crushed in spirit” (Psalms 34:18). During this time of sorrow “Draw close to god and he will draw close to you” (James 4:8)!because he will strengthen and sustain your family.

    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.

    May you find comfort in knowing that your dear one is safe in the memory of Jehovah God, who will remember every detail about him and bring him back again. God is eager to do it again. Jehovah hates death; he views it as an enemy.(1 Corinthians 15:26) 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. provides all we need to know to be a part of this promised resurrection.

    May you find comfort and strength in knowing that God loves you and he cares for you, through talking to God in prayer, and from God's Word, the Bible. Psalm 36:7 says: "How precious your loyal love is, O God! In the shadow of your wings, the sons of men take refuge." Nahum 1:7; God is "a stronghold in the day of distress. He is mindful of ["takes care of"] those seeking refuge in him." Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! (Psalm 34:18; Psalm 147:3)
