I'm so very sorry to read of yr dear loved ones passing, which I'm sure has made a major impact on the Family at this time, but please know that God hears your pleas for help and will offer it by means of his Holy spirit. But also know that one day, she will be resurrected by Jesus Christ in the future, as we read his future promise in John 5:28,29. And in a way, it doesn't stop there neither. See when she is brought back to life, she will be given the opportunity to live forever on a peaceful earth, like it says in the Bible at Psalm 37:29 which reads: The righteous will possess the earth and they will live forever on it...so one day, all of you will be able to welcome her back into your loving arms to hold and cherish forever. So if your wanting to know more about how God will fulfill these in the future, then by all means, feel free to visit us at, JW.org and there you will find many spiritual truths that will not only give a reason to have this hope firm in your hearts, but will also give you many reasons to be joyful now and forever.
