    My sympathy to the Garrett family. Few things cause more pain and heartache than the death of a loved one. I hope you find comfort in the Bible's repeated expressions of a future time when those in the grave will be brought back to life!

    My sincere condolences to the family for your loss. May you find comfort in knowing that that ALMIGHTY GOD cares for you; and that you can see your loved ones again free from all the causes of death and the heartache it brings. (John 5:28,29 - Revelation 21:3,4) Jehovah God assures us that there is going to be a resurrection of our loved ones back to a paradise earth. What a wonderful hope to look forward to! May family ,friends, prayers and the many memories help you through this difficult time.

    To the family and friends: please, accept our sincere condolences for the loss of your loved one. You can find comfort in the Bible account found at John 11; Jesus said to her: “Your brother will rise.” Martha said to him: “I know he will rise in the resurrection on the last day.” Jesus said to her: “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life". Please find more information about this beautiful promise at
