    To the family and friends,
    I am very sorry to hear of the loss of your loved one.
    God promises that our loved ones will come back to life. In the Bible at Acts 24:15 it says: " And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous." What will life on earth be like then? The Bible gives the answer!
    For comfort from the scriptures and answers to your questions, you can have free Bible studies. You may ask any one of Jehovah's Witnesses to make arrangements.
