My condolences in the loss of your beloved family member. Losing a loved one in death is very difficult. Our loving heavenly father has made a provision so that we can be reunited with our loved one again when the earth is a paradise. At John 11:25 Jesus said: ?Ç£I am the resurrection and the life.?ÇØ He is the One whom Jehovah God will empower to perform resurrections on a global scale. Jesus said: ?Ç£The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear (Christ?ÇÖs) voice and come out.?ÇØ (John 5:28, 29) Yes, all those sleeping in the grave have the prospect of being resurrected to life on a paradise earth. May these promises from our loving heavenly father comfort and strengthen you at this sad time.

Mary Frances and Marvin, we're sorry to hear about your loss. May you find strength from the words of Psalms 46:1 which reads: 'God is our refuge and strength, A help that is readily found in times of distress.' 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.
