It is always so sad when we lose a loved in death. I remember when I lost my Mother. It is good to remember that Jesus promised that he would raise the dead. This is certainly a great thing for us.. This has always helped me to think about this promise. Please read in your Bible at John chapter 5 and verses 28 and 29. I am sure this will help you. Please give my condolences to your family.

Please accept my heartfelt condolences. It is always painful to lose a loved one. I too have lost many dear ones to death. In the Lord’s prayer. Jesus says at Matthew chapter 6, verse 10: ‘Let your kingdom come. Let your will take place, as in heaven, also on earth.’ I find this comforting because nowhere in the Bible is sickness or death mentioned as occurring in heaven; hence, I look forward to seeing God’s will for the earth to be carried out just as it is in heaven. My understanding Almighty God Jehovah's purpose for the earth- (Psalm 115:16; Psalm 37:29), along with Jesus’ words at John 5:28, 29 about a resurrection, and  Luke 23:43 regarding Paradise all have helped me to cope. I sincerely hope that these Scriptures and words serve as some comfort to you at this time. For further Scriptural encouragement visit jw.org
