I'm sorry for your loss. It is never easy to lose someone we love. The Bible gives a sure hope of a resurrection. The scripture found at Isaiah 25:8 tells us that one day soon God will put an end to death. Please visit jw.org for more comforting information on this subject.

So very sorry for the loss of your dear one. Enjoying her so long must bring joy to your heart. The Bible comforts us during difficult times like this with these words at Psalm 34:18 where it says “Jehovah is close to the broken hearted, and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” The God of all Comfort is always near.

What a blessing to have had Ms. Dunn with you for such a long time. God, through His word, The Bible, gives us the hope of "everlasting life."How wonderful it would be to share an eternity with our loved ones. (Revelation 21:3,4; John 5:28,29). Please visit www.jw.org to find consoling answers to questions like, "Can the dead really live again?" and more. My condolences to your Family.

May her family have the strength they need now. The loss of a loved one is a heavy burden to bear. We look forward to the future time when the words of Jesus at John 5:28, 29 are fulfilled. Please accept my condolences

Nd. Dunn definitely lives a long life, my sincere condolences to the family. The Bible tells us though at Isaiah 25:8 that death soon will gone forever, how great that will be to be able to live forever without ever having to worry about dying. This will happen in the near future.
