I have no words that can take away the pain you are feeling. I wish I could wave a magic wand and make this all go away. Praying for God’s comfort and peace for you all. I love you so much Shana

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.

My condolences to you and your family. May  1Thessalonians 4:13 -15 give you and your family some comfort.  Which say " Brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about those who are sleeping in death, so that  you  may not sorrow as the rest do who have no hope. For if we have faith  that Jesus died and rose again and, so too God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep in death through Jesus ". So again my condolences to you and your family . Rebecca
