    Dear family we are sorry to hear about your loss death is difficult for family and friends however the Bible holds out hope for our deceased love ones found in the Bible book of John chapter 5 and verses 28 and 29. Why not read these scriptures in your personal copy of the Bible

    Peacefully Yours

    For additional information about the resurrection hope please refer to JW.Org

  2. When we lose our love one in death it is the most difficult time in our life. However there is loving comfort in Psalms 55:22 throw row your burden on God and he will sustain you. No matter what you are facing God is there to help you through it. Made the passage of time heal your grief.

  3. To the family of George, you have my condolences in your loss. Death is a difficult situation to accept and it was never God’s purpose for the human family to die. (Romans 5:12) He intended for humans to become many, to fill the earth, and to live forever upon it. That has not changed! (Psalm 37:29) May you have faith in John 3:16 which says, “For God loved the world so much that he gave his only-begotten Son, so that everyone exercising faith in him might not be destroyed but have everlasting life.”
