Dear Family, I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your Dear loved one. Our loving Creator never planned for death to be part of his original plan. There is such a loving scripture found at Revelation 2-: 3 & 4 which reads: With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, And they will be his people, And God himself will be with them, And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore, The Former things have passed away “ I hope these words help you find comfort and also give you hope for our near future.

Dear Family,
I send my sincere condolences for your loss. There are comforting promises in the Bible that the time is coming when “all those in the memorial tombs will hear [Jesus’] voice and come out.” (John 5:28,29) Our Loving Heavenly Father, Jehovah God has also promised that “he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more” (Revelation 21:4) May it comfort you and strengthen you to reflect on God’s promises to bring back to life your dear loved one to a beautified earth where she can be reunited with her family, and never have to get sick and die, ever again. (Psalm 37:11,29; Isaiah 33:24)

To the Family,
I send my condolences concerning the loss of your loved one. In losing many family members in death, I know it is hard to deal with this grief-stricken pain. But God, whose name is Jehovah, stated in His Word the Bible that “death will be no more”. (Psalms 83:1; 1Timothy 3:16; Revelation 21:4). Also, His Son, Jesus Christ, assured us at John 5:28,29: “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment”. So, rest assured, you will be united with Ms. Laverne (Huskey) Land and all of your loved ones when the Lord Jesus resurrects them back to life in God's new world. Please visit our website, and view the tract, “Can the Dead Really Live Again?” It has wonderful scriptural encouragement from God’s Word the Bible. Please use your Bible and read the cited scriptures.

Mr. Terry, a volunteer minister
