  2. While it saddens me to learn of the death of a loved one such as Leonard, it saddens God even more. He does not want your family to grieve in pain. Please know that he is very much aware if the many fond memories you shared together. That is why , through Christ Jesus, God promises to resurrect those in The Memorial Tombs. ( John 5:28,29) As you await the fulfillment of His promise, take comfort from His word and extend comfort to your other grieving loved ones with the same comfort. (2Cor1:3,4) You can also find and share encouragement from the site www.jw.org. All the best wishes for your family at this difficult time.
