To the family and friends,

I am very sorry to hear of the loss of your loved one.
The Bible gives us hope that we will be reunited with our loved ones. Isaiah 26:19 says: "" Your dead will live. My corpses will rise up. Awake and shout joyfully, You residents in the dust! For your dew is as the dew of the morning, And the earth will let those powerless in death come to life.""
Until that time God can give us comfort. The Bible gives God's promise at 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 which says: ""Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God.""
If you would like free Bible studies to bring you comfort, please ask any one of Jehovah's Witnesses to make arrangements.

Condolences to the Burns family. I know this is a difficult time for the family and I pray God comforts the family during this difficult time. A comforting thought and promise to keep in mind is at Revelation 21:4 ""And he (GOD) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain will be anymore. The former things have passed away."" May the many cherished and fond memories of Thomas comfort his family and friends. May you all have peace of mind during this time.

Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:18-31

As you try to comprehend this profound loss know that it is okay to grieve the loss of your dear loved one. For the true God in the heavens feel your pain - Isaiah 41:10. He knows your suffering and will help you cope with your grief. Job 10:1 says "" I will speak out in my bitter distress"". Have faith in God's promise written at Acts 24:15 which expresses the hope of seeing your dead loved ones again. It is comforting for us to know that God does not cause suffering and that one day it will end.
