I am so sorry to hear about this unfortunate passing. My condolences go out to the entire family. Hopefully, the family will find comfort in the Bible at Revelation 21:4 where it promises that in the future “death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be any more”. I ask that if you are ever approached by a Jehovah’s Witness, please feel free to express any question you may have about death, so that we may discuss from the Bible the hope that we will see our loved ones again.
