I want to send my deepest sympathy to the family of Mr. Raymond Arrington.
The bible tells us we can gain comfort from God, even during times of sorrow. We can pray to our heavenly father for help to cope with the sorrow felt from the death of a loved one.
“May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and gave everlasting comfort and good hope by means of undeserved kindness, comfort your hearts and make you firm.”—2 Thess. 2:16, 17.
The bible also promises that God “will wipe out every tear from [our] eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.” (Revelation 21:4) How comforting and reassuring that is!
May you find comfort by relying on our heavenly father and learning more about the blessings of God's kingdom.

To the family,
I just want to express my sincere condolences to the loss of your love one. Death is a powerful hurt “and the last enemy” that plague all of us. (1 Corinthians 15:26) But there is a hope for your love one. The scriptures tell us that there is going to be a resurrection and Jesus, under the direction of his heavenly Father, Jehovah, is going to bring those out of the memorial tombs. (John 5:28,29; Psalms 83:18) So, even though mourning is something we will all do when death occurs, please remember that your love one is safe in God’s memory.
Again, please accept my condolences, and if there is anything you would like to know about Jehovah, his Son, Jesus, and what they are planning on doing in the future, please visit our website at www.jw.org.
