Dear Polite Family, I want to take a moment to express my deepest sympathy to your family. Our God, Jehovah, desires to bring back those who have died and end all things that cause suffering, as we read at Revelation 21:4. May this and other promises recorded in God's word the Bible continue to comfort your family.

Tati K., Snelliville, GA

We are sorry to hear of the loss of your dear loved one. May you find comfort from our Heavenly Father. The scripture at Revelations 21:3,4 provides comfort for us in times of distress.

Yvette Polite and Children: Deeply sorry to hear of the tragic passing of your precious and dearly loved husband Big Mark. In the Lord’s Prayer, we pray that God’s Kingdom “Come.” That government by God will make the whole earth a paradise, with no more sickness (Isaiah 33:24). By means of an earthly resurrection, we will be reunited with our loved ones, (Psalm 37:9-11 & John 5:28-29.) More comfort, please see jw.org. With Deep Sympathy, J. Jones
