  4. I’m sending my sincere condolences to the Brown family and friends. This is one of life’s greatest challenges that we have to face. Jesus said, did, and promised something that gives us comfort and hope. In the Bible at John 11:11-14, Jesus likened death to sleep. This comfort us in two ways: 1) we are assured by those words that our loved ones are not suffering or in pain. 2) If a person is just sleeping, he will wake up! Notice what Jesus does next at John 11: 43-44, this is amazing! If you would like to know more details about this, please download a free copy of the brochure Good News from God @ and read lesson 6 along with the Bible.

    To the Brown family. My heart is with you and your family at this time of your loss. There is comfort in knowing God’s promises about the resurrection hope. (Acts 24:15) and (John 5:28,29) In the past God has resurrected humans and He is eager to do it again because He hates death. (Mark 5:41-43) To learn more about God’s promises go to JW.ORG. There are online Bible study lessons featured and more. Love Your Neighbor Irish J. Richardson.

  7. I am so very sorry for your recent loss of Ms Annette.Jesus felt the pain and sorrow that death brings when his friend Lazarus died. John 11:33-38
