    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. God is the creator of life. The Bible calls Jehovah God "the source of life." (Psalm 36:9 ;Acts: 17:24,25) The One who gave life to all living creatures is certainly capable of restoring life to someone who has died.

    We're sorry to hear about your recent loss. Accept our sincere condolences. The words of Philippians 4:13 can be very soothing in these moments, it 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.

    God strengthens us by giving us "the power beyond what is normal" to make it through each passing day. Psalm 46:1 says: "God is our refuge and strength, a help that is readily found in times of distress." Isaiah 41:13; I "am grasping your right hand, the One [God] saying to you,...'I will help you.'" Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! (Nahum 1:7)
