Please accept my heartfelt sympathy. May you find hope and comfort in knowing that your dear one is in the memory of our loving God Jehovah. God’s Word, the Bible, provides the greatest comfort of all. It states: “There is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.” (Acts 24:15) Soon, by means of God's Kingdom, no one will ever fall prey of these ruthless enemies, such as sickness and death (Isaiah 33:24; 1 Corinthians 15:26). On the contrary we will welcome our loved ones on an earthly paradise.
