Please accept my deepest sympathies for the loss of dear James. During this difficult time comfort can be found through Gods word the Bible. Revelation 21:3,4 and John 5:28,29 promise that soon death will be done away with and our loved ones who have passed will come back to life not in the sickened state they were in but in perfect human form. How we long for this promise to come true. Please know my thoughts are with you during this difficult time. For more comfort from the scriptures please visit JW.org.
