    Please accept 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 true blessing that will be. As you await this time, continue to lean on loving support of family and friends. Please visit JW.ORG and view the information on resurrection.
