Dear Sanderson family,
I'd like to express my condolence and deep regrets for your loss and share where I found comfort and hope when I lost my entire family to this enemy death. I found this in what I read in Jehovah Gods word the Bible at John5:28,29 here it tells us we'll see our love ones again at the resurrection when Jesus brings them back he on earth and we're also told at Isaiah25:8 this enemy death will be gone forever. These scriptures and jw.org help me cope with my loss and get through each day because now I know I'll see my love ones again and so can you.
I wanted to share this with you now when hope and comfort is needed hoping this will help you also for this is my purpose in sharing this with you at this time and please know I do share your grief and would like to know if this helped in some way so please feel free to let me know. I hope to hear from you.
Sincerely, GM
