I will like to express my condolences to the Gomez family , on the death of your loved one Patrick . I saw the announcement in the newspaper and I thought to write some words of comfort to you all from God's word . Death is something we can never get accustom to . However the Bible writer Paul offered comfort and hope of relief from that last enemy , death . He wrote at 1Corinthians 15 : 26 " Death is to be brought to nothing . " And at Acts 24 : 15 " I have hope toward God , which hope these men also look forward to , that there's going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous . " Millions therefore can have the solid hope of seeing their loved ones alive again on earth but under very different circumstances . For further details of the Bible based hope for our lost loved ones please feel free to get in touch with me or visit our website JW.ORG .
