May your young one sleep peacefully until his relief comes (Job 14:14, 15), he will soon hear the voice of Jesus Christ, along with all our dead loved ones in the memorial tombs (John 28, 29), all will be resurrected to life again on a paradise earth (Psalm 37:10, 11, 29), praise to our Lord, and Father, Jehovah God, for sending his beloved son, Jesus Christ, on earth, to die for our sins (John 3:16), to give us a hope for the future on earth.

To the Tally Family. I am sorry for your loss. ONLY those who have had someone dear to them taken away by death can know the frightful emptiness, the terrible sense of loss, the heartbreaking sorrow that death leaves behind by its unwelcomed visit.  I hope this scripture bring some comfort at this time. Revelation 21:4- And he 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.”

Hi I’m very sorry for your loss. I know that losing someone you love can be very difficult but I’ve found that the Bible can bring comfort at Isaiah 41:10. It says “ Do not be afraid, for I am with you. Do not be anxious, for I am your God. I will fortify you, yes, I will help you, I will really hold on to you with my right hand of righteousness.” So this scripture reminds us that God is always there for us, especially during times like these. We can go to him in prayer whenever we need comfort.

Sending sincere condolences to the family. I learned about DeRoyal from Jasmine's grandmother. Hearing about this hurts deeply. May you find comfort in leaning on one another, as well as the wonderful hope of seeing him again, as promised at John 6:40.

My deepest condolences to you during this time. Know that you are not alone and that if you ever need to talk, please don't hesitate to reach out.You're in my thoughts and prayers and I'm here for whatever you need.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends. Please remember that you are never alone. Jehovah will be there for you. The family and friends will be there for you with true love, and words of comfort. All mankind is moaning, groaning, because of the stresses, sickness, injustices, the belittlement of culture and then facing the greatest adversary, the enemy of all, Death! Help me. Help us. God's Word the Bible promises our love ones will be resurrected. How comforting it is to know that Jehovah, the God of all comfort, will eliminate all grief and provide permanent consolation when “all those in the memorial tombs will hear [Christ’s] voice and come out”! (John 5:28, 29) God promises that “he will do away with death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces.” (Isa. 25:8) Then, instead of having to “weep with those who weep,” all earth’s inhabitants will “rejoice with those who rejoice.” —Rom. 12:15.
