Jessi, I am so sorry for your loss. Your mom was a beautiful person that will be missed terribly by many. I worked with her for only a short time, but she amazed me with her energy and dedication. I feel truly blessed for knowing her. You are in my prayers, hoping God grants you peace during this difficult time. Much love to you, Melissa Stapleford

I am so sorry for your loss. Lisa seemed like a wonderful person and she will greatly be missed. I hope you and your family can draw comfort from the hope expressed in the Bible at Psalms 55:22 which says "Throw your burden in Jehovah, he himself will sustain you." God is here for us in good times and bad along with your family and friends. I hope your family will cope well and you will be in my hearts and prayers.

I still cannot believe this. My heart is heavy and my eyes weeping. I am going to miss this little firecracker beyond words. Me and my father are so sorry for Jessi's loss and her family. Jessie if you need to talk I am here. I have been right where you are. She wouldn't want us to be sad. I raise a glass in her remembrance and cherish every memory she ever gifted to me. Love always. Rebecca and Roland Caldwell (my father)

To family and friends, I am very sorry to hear of the loss of your loved one. No matter how long we live we would normally like to live longer. Why is that? We were created to live forever. God told Adam not to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and bad or he would surely die. (Genesis 2:17) This was a small test to see if he loved God. 1 John 5:3 says: "For this is what the love of God means, that we observe his commandments; and yet his commandments are not burdensome. " So why do we die today? Because we inherited imperfection from Adam and Eve. Romans 5:12 says: " That is why, just as through one man sin entered the world and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because they had all sinned." Jesus gave his life as a ransom to pay back what Adam lost (a perfect human life.) Romans 5:19 goes on to say: " For just as through the disobedience of one man many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of one person many will be made righteous." Jesus will bring our dead loved ones back to life. Acts 24:15 says: "And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous."

The scriptures quoted in this condolence are from the New World Translation. To the family and friends, I am very sorry to hear of the loss of your loved one. When Jesus was on earth his friend Lazarus died. He was in the tomb for 4 days already when Jesus arrived. Mary and Martha, Lazarus' sisters were grieving and Jesus gave way to tears. Jesus compared death to sleep. He called to Lazarus and Lazarus came back to life! You can read this wonderful true account in the Bible at John chapter 11. Jusus demonstrated what he will do for mankind when his kingdom government is ruling over all the earth. Our loved ones will come back to life! At time there will be no more pain or death (Revelation 21:3,4.) If you would like a free Bible study to bring you comfort, please go to the bottom of the home page of jw.org.
