With deep sympathy to the Gordon family, I hope you will be strengthened and comforted by God's promise at Isaiah 25:8 "He will swallow up death forever". This promise gives us something to look forward to, Acts 24:15 speaks of a resurrection, a future and most loving prospect for our dear loved ones. During these difficult times my family and I find comfort through the scriptures and related topics on jw.org. Please accept my sincerest condolences for the loss of your dear Louia.
The loss of a loved one to death is very difficult to handle. One thing that has always comforted me during such a time is the hope for the dead mentioned at Acts 24:15. Also the fact that one day "death will be no more" at Revelation 21:3,4. This is a promise that Jehovah God is going to fulfill in the near future. Please accept my sincere condolences.
