    We are sorry to read of the passing of your loved one. Words don’t always ease the pain when you are grieving the death of a loved one, but we hope you will find comfort in Jesus’ promise of the resurrection hope (Acts 24:15) when he will raise up those who are now sleeping in death(John 11:11) restoring them back to life, on the renewed Paradise earth (John 5:28,29; Luke 23:43) what a wonderful blessing to look forward too. Until then, may Jehovah God (Psalms 83:18) grant you peace and comfort during this grievous time.-Matthew 5:4.
