So very sorry for the tragic losses your family has suffered. I wish to share comfort from the Bible at this terribly sad time. God has promised to reunite us with our loved ones and to do away with our greatest enemy death. Isaiah 25:8: "He will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces. The reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth, for Jehovah himself has spoken it." Revelation 21: 3,4 promises: "With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them.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. May the hope in these scriptures bring you comfort and strength to endure during this difficult time. Please see jw.org
