To the Family and Friends of Lucile Waters,

I wanted to express my deepest sympathy and concern for you and also share with you the wonderful hope for our dead loved ones. As you grieve Lucile’s death, please reflect on the hope in question, which comes from the Creator of the Universe, Jehovah God. Yes, by means of his word the Bible, He allows us to understand how He’ll eliminate death for good one day and bring our dead loved ones back to life again. This is evident in (Isaiah 25: 8), (John 5: 28 and 29), (1 Corinthians 15:26), (Revelation 21:3 and 4), which can comfort you in your sorrow. God’s promises are guaranteed because He cannot lie (Titus 1: 2). Moreover John 11 verses 11-14, 39, 43, and 44 attests that Jesus, whom God appoints to bring the dead back to life, can do it since he demonstrated that when he resurrected Lazarus and two other individuals while he was on earth. So as you await the fulfillment of the resurrection, please heed Jesus’ counsel found at John 17 verse 3 by taking steps to get to know God as well as Jesus through a FREE home Bible study with the Witnesses. Notice that in the preceding verse Jesus compares the true knowledge of God and of him to “EVERLASTING LIFE”, which will be enjoyed here on earth when it becomes a paradise where you can be re-united with Lucile again in a world free of all the problems we deal with today like SICKNESS, VIOLENCE, WAR, OLD AGE etc…as indicated in (Isaiah 33:24), (Psalms 37: 9-11 and 29), (Psalms 46: 8 and 9), (Job: 33:25).
May you be comforted by the cited Scriptures, which give us hope for a wonderful future in God’s upcoming new and righteous world!(Matthew 19:28-30); (2 Peter 3:13, 14)
