My heartfelt and deepest condolences to the family for your loss. May the scripture at Revelation 21:4 bring you some comfort with the promise that our Creator will soon do away with death and mourning. Soon will come the day when our loved ones will be brought back to life on a paradise earth. For more information please visit jw.org. Here is a glimpse of that promise.
