    May God's promise of eternity bring you peace, my condolences goes out to the entire family. How wonderful a time it will be when His promise is fulfilled,“Truly I tell you today, You will be with me in Paradise" Luke 23:43. When paradise is restored, people will be able to enjoy peace and plenty of food and vibrant health. He promise to do away with death at Revelation 21:4, “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” For further comfort and to know why we get sick or grow old and die please go to www.jw.org
