I would Iike to send my deepest condolences. I was so sorry to read of the loss of your loved one. Please accept comfort and hope from the scriptures found at (Acts 24:15 and 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4 NWT,) that states that we can have hope that the loved ones we have loses will be brought back to life and that until then God promises to comfort us through any trial that we are going through. May Jehovah God continue to be with you all.

I want to offer my condolences to you and your family. The loss of a loved one is the most difficult thing we have to deal with. But God's word offers comfort at Revelation 21:4 it says that God will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more. What beautiful words of comfort. And it even tells us that we will see our love ones again. For more comforting information please refer to the website
