I was sorry to read about the loss of your dear loved one. The bible gives us hope of seeing them again in the promised resurrection to come according to scriptures such as [John 5:28-29] and [Acts 24:15]. We find further hope in scriptures like [Isaiah 25:8] and [Revelations 21:3-5] which says in part that Jehovah God will wipe out every tear from our eyes and death will be no more, because God will swallow up death forever. I hope these scriptures will be of some comfort. My Sincere Condolences.

Grief can be so hard and painful, but our special memories  can help us to cope. I'm sorry to hear about your loss and wanted to share the Bible's hope of a resurrection at a time when there is no more sickness, pain or death right here on earth. This is the promise from our heavenly father according to Revelation 21:3,4. Sincerely Rebecca

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.

Dear Carol, Just a note to tell you how shocked I was to read in the paper today about Erin's passing. I am sure it must have been a terrible shock to you and your family. There is a passage in the bible in I Thessolonians chapter 4 verses 13 thru 18 and speaks about the assurance of a ressurection for those who are believers and it especially gives comfort to those who are grieving by giving them the hope that one day we will once again see those who have gone on before us. Rest assured that MOM and Harold are taking good care of Erin now.
