    I am so sorry for the families loss. Monroe was such a nice person. I know he will be missed by the people who love him. The scriptures always provide much comfort and home during times like this. (2nd Corinthians 1: 3-7) . Please find peace in knowing that God understand your grief and hand that he cares. (1 Pet 5: 6,7)

    We don't know what to say except that we love you. We can't understand exactly how you feel, but Jehovah dies and will keep raising you up. We hope that our prayers will help a little. 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.

    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!

    So sorry to hear of your loss. As the days go by, may you experience the love of our heavenly Creator, Jehovah God as he strengthen you and your family to get through this trying time. (Psalms 83:18) Remember he loves your loved one also and has promised to get rid of sickness and death forever and by means of his son Jesus Christ, bring back to life our loved ones. (Revelation 21:4; John 5:28,29) Please accept my deepest condolences. jw.org---(Website for more encouragement.)

    Our deepest condolences to the family. When our loved ones fall asleep in death, words alone cannot ease the pain of our loss. Our loving God Jehovah understands how we feel and he comforts us by means of his word the Bible. Psalm 147:3 reads He (God) heals the brokenhearted; He binds up their wounds. We can also find comfort from Jesus words at John 5:28-29 “The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out”. May these scriptures bring comfort and calmness of heart to you during the difficult days ahead. To learn more about this promise please visit our website: jw.org and view the comforting video; What is the Condition of the Dead?

    God will sustain you with his "right hand of righteousness" during this difficult time and through each passing day. Isaiah 41:10 says: "Do not be afraid, for 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!
