"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."

Doug and Peggy Woolard"
