I would like to express my condolences to the family. I hope this promise by Jehovah God brings all who are grieving your dear loved one a sense of hope and comfort. In the new world, “there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.” (Acts 24:15) At that time Jesus will use his God-given power to raise the dead because, as he said, “I am the resurrection and the life. He that exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life.” (John 11:25)

At times like this it may seem that God is far and we need so much comfort, but in this time of sorry and pain, call on the Lord. His Word says that our cries reach His ears. He is listening. Call Him up! We are praying for you all.
