Look back on all the good memories you were able to have and smile at the fact that you were able to share these before she passed away. My hearts and prayers go out to you and your family. God has promised us that we will soon be reunited with our loved ones. “There is going to be a resurrection,” the Bible confirms at Acts 24:15. “Do not be amazed at this,” Jesus assures us, “for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” (John 5:28, 29)

To the family and friends,
I am very sorry to hear of the loss of your loved one.
God promises that our loved ones will come back to life. In the Bible at Acts 24:15 it says: "And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous." What will life be like then?
For comfort from the scriptures and answers to your questions, you can have free Bible studies. You may ask any one of Jehovah's Witnesses to make arrangements.

To the family and friends of Mrs. Russell always cherish the fond memories of time spent together and although you may grieve the Bible can be a source of comfort. At (Revelation 21:3,4) it speaks of a time when there will be no more sickness or death, also at (Acts 24:15) it speaks of a resurrection that we all can look forward to. May the peace and love of the God of the Bible be with you all.
