To the family and friends of Joseph, In this difficult time may the God of all comfort, comfort you in all your trials 2 Corinthian 1:3,4

To the Family and Friends of James,

We offer our sincere condolences to you at this time of great loss. The pain we experience due to the death of a dear loved one is indeed difficult and hard to bear. Especially is this the case when losing someone like James, who was so young. However, we have found great comfort in what our Heavenly Father Jehovah tells us about death and what he plans to do in the very near future. In the Bible at Revelation 21:4 it tells us: “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain by anymore. The former things have passed away.” Knowing what Almighty God Jehovah plans to do in the very near future, has brought so many people real comfort and solace in times of sadness. We hope these comforting words will bring you some comfort as well.
