Dear Family, Please accept my condolences. The sting of death is hard to bear. Our Heavenly Father, Jehovah, understands our sorrow. He doesnt want us hurting. In fact, in His Word, the Bible, He gives us encouragement. Its explained in His Word about why death and suffering happen. Additionally, He helps us to understand that this was not meant to be. Acts 24:15, in the Bible, notes that there will be a resurrection! Revelation 21:4 mentions that our Creator promises that death, mourning, and pain will be things of the past. Whats more, 1 Corinthians 15:26 confirms that death will be brought to nothing. Imagine that! A world in which therell be no more death. Can you picture it? I am encouraging you to take heart! Currently, your loved one is now resting. But, in the very near future, that loved one will be raised---resurrected---to the prospect of living here, on earthFOREVER! This is a PROMISE from our Creator, HIMSELF! Isnt that wonderful, good news? I hope these words of encouragement have done for you what I have intended for them to do. And, that is, to provide you with some comfort, peace, and strength.
