We're sorry to hear about your recent loss. Accept our sincere condolences. The words of Philippians 4:13 can be very soothing in these moments, it says: "For all things I have the strength through the one who gives me power."
What a loving God who cares about each one of us.
He didn't intend for us to grow old and die. He thus has made the SURE promise of a resurrection right here on earth when it is restored to a beautiful paradise (Psalms 37:9-11, 29; Acts 24:15; Isaiah 55;11).
Can you see yourself welcoming back to life your loved ones? What a joy it will bring all of us. You can go online to JW.ORG and find out more about this resurrection.

May you find much comfort in the words at Revelation 21:3,4. Jehovah God can certainly undo any damage this world brings upon us.
