My condolences to the family on the loss of your loved one. Losing someone you love is truly difficult and I know Doris will be missed. Please know our Heavenly Father holds out promises that can help us with our sorrow. One such promise is that death soon will be done away with forever (Revelations 21:4) and another promise is that "there is going to be a resurrection"(Acts 24:15). I pray these promises from God, who cannot lie (Titus 1:2) brings you comfort. For more comfort from the Bible, visit www. jw. org.

My deepest condolences to the family for your loss. Our Heavenly Father Jehovah gives us a comforting thought when He tells us that soon death will be "swallowed up forever." (1 Cor. 15:54) Along with this, Jehovah God also promises that ones who have died will be able to live again. (John 5:28,29) I hope these encouraging scriptures can bring you some comfort during this difficult time.

Though Doris's pass is a great loss, I think back to all the great family memories we have . Doris had a good thing for quick one line zingers(funnies). We will forever miss you. May you and Buck watch over us together forever.
