I'm so sorry for your loss. Death was not intended to be apart of life. Jehovah, God, makes a comforting promise at John 5:28,29 to resurrect our loved ones one day. I hope this scripture gives you comfort as it has given me in times of loss. For more information, please visit jw.org.

Kelly, ,

I am sorry for your loss. Death is painful to all of us. However God's word the Bible always offers encouragement. A scripture I find comforting is Isaiah 25:8. There Jehovah promises to do away with death and all things that bring us pain. That will be very satisfying! I hope this thought has been comforting to you. May positive thoughts fill you hearts and minds as you endure this difficult time.
