"To The Friends And Loved Ones Of Blanche Etheridge:

I know that your hearts ache right now over the loss of Blanche. At this difficult time, may you be comforted in knowing that our loving heavenly Father Jehovah weeps with you. His dear Faithful Son Jesus wept before resurrecting Lazarus who had fallen asleep in death. They feel that great pain and sadness we do. Jesus has promised "there will be a resurrection" (John 5:28,29) Oh how we all long for that day. Take comfort in knowing it will happen. (Isaiah 55:11)"

"I'm sorry to hear of the loss of your loved one. Jehovah God promises that very soon death and all sorrow will be a thing of the past.

Revelation 21:3,4. "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. "

Also, he promises that there will be a resurrection. This real hope of seeing our dead loved ones live again is found at Acts 24:15.

I hope the promises of the Bible can bring you and your family comfort during this difficult time."
