    The lose of your love one Patricia saddens your family and nothing could have prepared your family for such a great lose. My deepest condolences are with you. However, you can be comforted knowing that Patricia have the hope of a resurrection. The resurrection hope is recorded in the Bible at John 5:28,29 and Acts 24:15. Furthermore, our Heavenly Father Jehovah have compassion for your family especially now. His love and compassion was written at Psalms 34:18 which says “Jehovah is near the broken-hearted; He is close to those who are crushed in spirit”. At this time of mourning Jehovah stated at James 4:8,”Draw close to Jehovah and he will draw close to you” because he will strengthen and comfort you.

    The Bible calls death an enemy at 1 Corinthians 15: 26. It's an enemy because Satan is the cause of death because of his influence on Adam and Eve. Death will be conquered soon because John 5: 28, 29 speaks of a resurrection for our loved ones. 2 Corinthians 1:3 - 5 assures us that God comforts us in all our trials. The comfort from the scriptures gives us hope according to Romans 15:4. Make prayer a part of your daily routine, and please accept my sincere condolences.

    To the family, Please accept my sincere condolences for the loss of your dear loved one. It's never easy to say a last farewell to someone who meant more than any words can tell. May your precious memories and the promise God has made at Revelation 21:4 help to ease the pain your your loss. It states that "God will wipe out every tear and death will be no more...neither pain or death. These words are faithful and true.

    We are saddened to hear you are grieving the recent loss of your loved one. In these tough moments, Psalms 34:18 is very comforting. It reads: “ Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit.” Our loving God cares about us and is ready to bring us comfort if we allow him (1John 5:14). He also has made the SURE promise of a resurrection RIGHT HERE ON EARTH when it is restored into a beautiful paradise (Acts 24:15 Isaiah 55;11). See and imagine yourself welcoming back to life your dear loved one? This and more information about what God's Kingdom through his son Jesus will do after this resurrection can be found online at jw.org. Sincere and warmest condolences!

    God will sustain you with his "right hand of righteousness" during this difficult time and through each passing day. Isaiah 41:10 says:..."I am with you. Do not be anxious, for I am your God. I will fortify you, yes, I will help you, I will really hold on to you with my right hand of righteousness." 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!
