Please accept my deepest sympathies for the loss of dear Leroy. Death is a terrible thing and during this difficult time we may not know where to turn to. Our Heavenly Father has given us his word the Bible for comfort and hope. Revelation 21:3,4 and John 5:28,29 promise that soon death will be done away with and those that have passed remain in Gods memory and soon he will bring them back to life in a perfect new world in a perfect new body. How we look forward to that promise coming true! Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you. If you would like to know more about this promise to see our loved ones again, please visit JW.org.

I am so sorry to hear of your great loss. Recently I lost my dear mother, and found
great comfort in the Holy Bible, like at Isaiah 25 verse 8 - "The Sovereign Lord will
swallow up death forever, and wipe away the tears from all faces." Also at
Revelation 21 verse 4, we find God's promise to remove both pain and death.
For more comfort I turn to the website at: www.jw.org (Search: Comfort)
