On behalf of the Seecharan family of Houston Texas, we extend our most sincere condolences to Sam's immediate family in this time of great sorrow & loss. Sam & I are 1st cousins. His late father (Sony) and my mother (Rona) of Edmonton Canada are brother/sister. I only learnt of Sam's passing yesterday, some 2 weeks after his death. Although, I had never met his wonderful wife and family because the families are spread over such long distances, I had always hoped to see him again soon and meet them. RIP Sam from Curt, Annie & Melissa Seecharan, Houston, Texas. Our thoughts continue to be with your family.
Please accept my deepest sympathy on your recent loss.
Losing our loved ones to death is always hard for us to accept because of how we were created. " ... He has even put eternity in their heart..." (Eccl.3:11) The Bible clearly says that our creator Jehovah does not like death at all, He calls death an enemy. 1 Corinthians chapter 15 verse 26 says, “As the last enemy, death is to be brought to nothing.”So it is comforting to know that very soon death will no longer be a cause for sorrow.
What will bring even more joy is when the scripture at Acts chapter 24 verse 15 is fulfilled. That scripture says that God will resurrect or bring back to life persons who have died. Act 24:15 “and I have hope toward God, which hope these men themselves also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.” These ones will be brought back to life to enjoy life on earth once again, this time on earth free of sickness violence and death. Psalms 37:29 “the righteous themselves will possess the earth, and they will reside forever upon it”.
These are just a few scriptures that brought me some comfort, and I hope that it does the same for you. If you would like to know more on the subject please feel free to contact me. Please see our website www.jw.org
