To the family
Words cannot expressed how deeply sorry I am for your lost. It brings sadness in my heart when I hear another individual has fallen asleep in death. But from what I know is that we have a loving God whose name is Jehovah. (Psalms 83:18). Jehovah God loves us all and He also suffered the same amount of pain and sadness that you are all experiencing.
But one thing that Jehovah God can do that we cannot is bring back our love ones. John 5: 28, 29 says: "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things”.
I know the pain still hurts but please, keep Jehovah God close to you to help you endure. I've attached an online tract from our website jw.org called "Can the Dead Really Live Again?" with scriptural information to support that question. This information and more could hopefully help you as you grieve. Again, I'm sorry for your lost; Please feel free to reach out if possible.
My condolences to the family.

Hello Fournier Family, I'm a neighbor living in Fayetteville.
Having heard of your most recent loss, I want to leave you a brief text. I too well know, the grief of losing love ones, and that at times like these it is encouraging just to know that others are thinking about us. Something that has helped me deal with such losses, is the wonderful promise of Christ Jesus, recorded for our comfort , at John 5: 28,29. I hope that when you are feeling a little better, that you are going to look up these Scriptures, in your copy of The Bible. Also, I hope that this brief note finds The Family feeling as good as can be expected Today.

I am so sorry for the loss of your loved one. There is a very comforting scripture found at Isaiah 25:8. It says that soon Jehovah will swallow up death forever and that he will wipe away all of the tears. So we can look forward to a time when death will be done away with forever. I hope that this scripture can bring some comfort during this time.
