Please accept my sincere condolences for the loss of your loved one. It seems so unfair that death should have the power to take away someone you love. The Bible gives us God’s promise that there will be a resurrection and that God will bring an end to death
once and for all (Revelation 21:4). It is my hope that the power of God’s Word will help to ease your sorrow as you cherish the loving memories you shared together. For more information please visit JW.ORG.

Lawrence Family,

You have my deepest sympathy regarding the recent loss of Thomas. Please find comfort and strength in the hope that God provides in His Word, the Bible. At Revelation 21:4, God says, "he (God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” Please cherish the memories of Thomas now and find peace and comfort in knowing you will see your dear loved one again.
