I am so very sorry for your loss. At this difficult time please remember the Bible's promise at Acts 24:15, "There is going to be a resurrection." May the God of all comfort, comfort you in all your trials. - 2 Corinthians 1:3,4SincerelyAmy Smith jw.org

We are so sorry for the loss. The way we see things is not the way Jehovah God see things. The pain you now feel of losing a loved one was never attended for man to experience however we do. Until our relief comes may the Lord grant you the peace that excel all thought.

I am so sorry to have read of your loss. Please accept my sincere condolences. The Bible is a great source of encouragement at times like this. Something that I have personally found to be of great comfort is what the Bible says at John 5:28, 29 ( Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.) As well as Revelation 21:3,4 (With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: "Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. 4 And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.) These verses show us that soon God is going to bring about a resurrection of our loved ones as well as do away with all causes we have for suffering including sickness and death. Knowing this has always comforted me and it is my sincere hope that these thoughts comfort your family as well. Again I am so sorry for your loss and May Jehovah God bring you comfort during these difficult times.
