    My deepest sympathy during this most difficult time. May you find comfort and peace knowing that soon in the near future death will be a thing of the past. John 5:28,29 assures us with the words, “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”. What a blessing that will be as you await this time, continue to lean on loving support of family and friends (Proverbs 18:24). Please visit JW.ORG and view the information on resurrection.
