I would like to offer my condolences for your loss. How comforting it is to know that Jehovah, the God of all comfort, will soon 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.

My condolences to the family of Mrs. Suttoon. It is so difficult when a loved one falls asleep in death. Our heavenly father Jehovah God feels the pain that it causes. He offers comfort from his word the Bible to help cope with those feelings. Psalm 147:3 says; He (God) heals the brokenhearted; He binds up their wounds. And at Isaiah 33:24 he promise in the near future; And no resident will say: "I am sick". Soon the earth will be a paradise and sickness and death will be gone (Revelation 21:4).
