  1. Hello, I am one of Jehovah’s Witnesses and I would like to express my condolences by sharing an encouraging scripture with you from the Bible. The scripture is found at Revelation 21:3,4 which says:
    “ With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. 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.” So we can look forward to the time when ‘Death will be no more.’

  2. Dear Hill family, I’m sorry for your loss and you have my deepest condolences. The loss of a loved one brings great pain and sorrow but you can gain comfort from Gods word the Bible. Acts 24:15 says “There is going to be a resurrection” so you can see your dear loved one again. A promise from our loving Heavenly Father. I hope this was a source of encouragement for the family.
