I would like to extend my deepest sympathies to your entire family. I’m sure the grief and sadness you experience feels like it’s more than you can handle. So I pray that you receive much needed love and support from family and friends to help you cope. And please take comfort in knowing that God promises that He “will actually swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will certainly wipe the tears from all faces.” (Isaiah 25:8) The Bible teaches that death is not the end. So just imagine the happiness you will feel when your loved one is resurrected! You truly can see them again one day soon. And if you would like to learn more about that please visit www.jw.org
