I would like to express my deepest sorrow for the lost of your dear loved one. The pain, grief and the feelings of helplessness can seem unbearable. At such times, we need to go to Gods word for comfort. ( 2 Corinthians 1: 3, 4 ) The Bible helps us to understand how God and Jesus feel about death. The Bible at John 11: 35 says "Jesus gave way to tears" This was when his dear friend Lazarus died. The Bible also teaches us that God is eager to raise the dead. ( John 5: 28 & 29 , Acts 24: 15) Yes, God really will defeat our enemy death forever. This will enable us to one day have the hope of seeing our dead loved ones again. I hope this message will be a source of comfort to you. If you have any questions feel free to contact one of Jehovah's Witnesses or log on to our website at jw.org. Sincerely yours, JW.
