Please allow me to offer my condolences to the, Facemire family with these healing words: “The Lamb, who is in the midst of the throne, will shepherd them and will guide them to springs of waters of life. And God will wipe out every tear from their eyes.” – Rev. 7:17; 21:1-4. Not only does God have the power to restore the dead but he also has the desire to do so. The faithful man Job was inspired to say that God actually yearns to bring back the dead. (Job 14:15) Are you not drawn to our God, who is eager to use his restorative power in such a loving way? As you draw ever closer to him, always cherish the precious hope that you can be there to see God “making all things new.”—Revelation 21:5. I am very sorry for your loss. May God’s Word comfort you and your family. Sincerely, Meryl ~ email@example.com. For more information about God’s Kingdom promises, please visit jw.org.
