To The Family of Mr. Rufus, The death of a love One is very painful, however it is part of all our lives, no matter who we are all of mankind has felt the pain of death. Take comfort our Creator Jehovah God ( Psalm 83 : 18 ), has promise to eliminate death forever, Isaiah 25 : 8. Then Jesus ' words at John 5 : 28, 29, Acts 24 : 15 and Revelation 21 : 4, will be fulfilled. These verses tells us that our love Ones will come back by means of the resurrection, we can believe this because God cannot lie, Titus 1 : 2. For more comforting and encouraging scriptures on the resurrection, please go to our website at www.jw.org for more information.

We are saddened to learn of Brother Wiggins transition from us and especially from his family here on earth. In your sorrow we pray that that Mrs. Wiggins and the Wiggins family will find some peace in knowing that Brother Wiggins' absence from this earth evidences his presence with our Lord. For indeed Brother Wiggins did not hesitate to acknowledge Jesus as his Lord and savior. We know Brother Wiggins from his works at Brookins Faith Temple AME Church in Lanham, MD. For example, we remember that Brother Wiggins was instrumental in ensuring the continuity of Church School due to the absence of our Supertendent and his love for the BFT family. Brother wiggins will be missed here on this earth. However, please remember that you will see him again in all of his perfection (without sickness). Again, our condolences to the Wiggins family.

Please accept my condolences during this time of distress. While it is indeed sad that you are mourning the loss of your dear Rufus, it saddens God more. In the days ahead, you will continue to reflect on his seemingly small, yet precious memories. This is occurs especially when we experience the loss of someone loved. However, take confidence in knowing that just as you have memories, almighty God remembers too. The difference is, God can and will restore perfect life to those in His memory as explained in the faith strengthening video ** vimeo.com/203513162

Please accept my condolences. Our loving God has given us the Bible for comfort. It offers a real hope of being reunited with our loved ones. Acts 24:15 assures us that "there is going to be a resurrection." John 5:28-29 speaks about "the hour coming in which All those in the Memorial Tombs will hear his (Jesus) voice and come out. (Isaiah 25:8) He will swallow up death forever, And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces. . Rev 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.” My thoughts and prayers are with your family and friends.

My condolences in the loss of your loved one. I would like to share some encouraging thoughts from the Bible. The pain of grief we feel when our loved ones die can sometimes be unbearable. The comforting words from our heavenly father Jehovah found at Isaiah 25:8; He (God) will swallow up death forever. And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe the tears from all faces, and Psalm 34:18; Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit, will help you to cope with the grief and sadness now and in the days ahead.
