I wanted to express my condolences to your family for your loss. Having lost family members myself, I wanted to share what brought me comfort. May you think of the many beautiful memories that you shared with your loved one and cherish those precious moment. Having lost family members myself, I wanted to share what brought me comfort. May the God of all comfort caress your heart with his loving promise to one day reunite you together again, in the future paradise mentioned at Revelation 21:4,5. Our Dear Heavenly Father Jehovah (Psalms 83:18) knows the many tears you cry, and He will sustain you. I hope that you can find comfort during this difficult time. Peggy S

Our heart goes out to your family for your precious loss. I can’t take away your pain, tears and sadness. But please know we care. “Just as a cultivator longs to see the roots of a cut-down olive tree spring up again, Jehovah God longs to restore his deceased servants and many others to life. (Matt. 22:31, 32; John 5:28, 29; Acts 24:15) What a joy it will be to welcome back the dead and see them enjoy productive lives once again!” (Please visit the website (JW.org) if you have anymore questions on death.)
