Deep sympathy to the family and friends of Catherine Vaughn, 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. The sting of death is so painful and 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 Catherine.
To the family of Catherine Vaughn, I offer my sincere condolences. Suffering the loss of a loved one in death is a devastating blow that leaves our hearts broken and our spirits crushed. Psalms 34:18 assures us God is "close to the brokenhearted" and "saves those who are crushed in spirit". May you find refuge and relief in the hopeful words He has promised at Isaiah 25:8 during this most grievous time.-jw.org
