The death of a loved one is difficult. Please take comfort in the knowledge that our heavenly father understands the sting of death as he also experienced the death of his only-begotten son—his first-born, Jesus Christ. But God gave Jesus “the keys of death” to use in releasing others from mankind’s common grave and from the effects of Adamic sin (Rev 1:18). The resurrections performed by Jesus offered clear proof that God gave Jesus power over death (Mark 5:41,42; John 11:40-44). To learn more, please visit the website jw.org. Please accept my heartfelt condolence for your loss.
