I am saddened to learn that you’re mourning the loss of your dear love one. However, it saddens our God even more. No doubt, you have many fond memories which will resurface from time to time. And because you do have memories, certainly shows that almighty God has memories as well. Therefore, with full confidence you can take comfort in knowing that he longs to restore perfect life to all those in his memory (Job 14:13-15; Rev 21:3, 4). Please accept my condolences at this most distressing time.

Please be encouraged:

"For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who recognizes the Son and exercise faith in him should have everlasting life, and I will resurrect him on the last day."

Memories are great to hold onto and can help to bring fond remembrances down the road. May our Jehova-God, Jesus, embrace you all with His loving arms and know that He will never forget, forsake or leave you alone. We have found this hope and encouragement in our lives and we pass it on to the family and loved ones of Donald.
