    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 eager to do it again. Jehovah hates death, he views it as an enemy. (! 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.

May God's love and comfort be with you and the family. “For this is the will of my Father, that everyone that beholds the Son and exercises faith in him should have everlasting life, and I will resurrect him at the last day.” John 6:40 jw.org---(Website for more encouragement.)
