    May you find comfort in knowing that your dear one is safe in the memory of God, who will remember every detail about him and bring him back again. God has resurrected humans in the past. The Bible reports eight instances of humans-young, old, male, and female-who were brought back to life on earth. Sone had been dead for a short while, but one had been in a tomb for four days!- John 11:39-44. The details can be found at our website www.jw.org

    I’m sorry to ear of the untimely passing of your love one Ja Kirus and nothing could have prepared you for your great loss and my sincere sympathies are with your family. However your lasting memories of Ja Kirus are a comfort and remember John is also in the memory of the Almighty god and Creator Jehovah who offers John the hope of a resurrection that resurrection hope is written in the Bible at John 6:28,29 and Acts 24:15. Furthermore, during this time of grief our Heavenly Father Jehovah shares your pain wrote this to you, “Jehovah is near the broken-hearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit”. Therefore, you can find the greatest comfort now and beyond by “drawing close to Jehovah and he will draw close to you” (James 4:8) because he cares for you.
