I am sorry for your loss please accept my deepest sympathy. I hope you will find your strength and comfort in Jesus promises of the earthly resurrection(Acts 24:15) and the renewed Paradise earth, where death will be no more and no family will have to mourn the death of a loved one.-Revelation 21:3,4; Luke 23:43. May GOD(Psalms 83:18) grant you peace and comfort now during this grievous time.-Matthew 5:4.

Sarah's family grieves with this family having known them through their sincere and genuine daughter Crystal.

Please accept my sincere condolences. At times like these, "God is near to those who are broken at heart; And those crushed in spirit he saves." (Psalm 34:18) I hope this will bring you a measure of comfort. I just wanted to share with you a promise from God that states in the near future, we can see our dead loved ones right here on the earth. “Death is an enemy”, as the Bible states, and “soon it will be brought to nothing” (1 Cor. 15:26) There will be no more tears, pain, or sorrow, as the former things will be passed away-Rev. 21:3,4.May your warm memories and sure scriptural hope sustain you at this difficult time. If you would like to know more please visit JW.Org
