  • My sincerest condolences to the family. Of all the things that afflict us as humans, the pain of losing a loved one in death is truly indescribable. May the God of all comfort grant you strength and peace during this most difficult time. (2 Corinthians 1:3, 4)

  • I’m so sorry for your loss. I’d like to share some real hope with you. In Psalms 146:4 tells the condition of the dead. “His breath goeth forth, he returneth to the earth and that very day his thoughts perish.” In Acts 24:15 the bible promises a resurrection of our loved ones back to earth. When Jesus resurrected Lazarus from the dead, he brought him back to earth. He’s going to do that on a much larger scale in the future. In Psalms 37:11+29 says man will live forever on the earth in peace. That was God’s original purpose, for man to live forever in the garden of eden. God’s purpose hasn’t changed.. That’s why he gave his son to die for us, John 3:16, so we could have everlasting life. In Revelation 21:4 says there’ll be no more pain or death. Since there’s no pain or death in heaven, those are future conditions on earth under God’s kingdom arrangement. JW.org
