  • To Mr. Smith’s family, I’m very sorry for your loss. It’s my hope that you can draw comfort and strength from Jehovah God’s promises in the Bible at Revelation 21: 3, 4 and John 5: 28, 29 that there will soon be a time when there will be no more death, and we will see the loved ones we have lost again. Please accept my deepest condolences.
