To family and friends. I am so very sorry for the passing of Terry Stone, it is always hard to lose someone special. It may be comforting to know that our God Jehovah is also saddened by death and even Jesus gave way to tears at John 11:33,35. Another comforting thought is to know the future of such ones. Isaiah 26:19 tells us about the promise our God has made to us to resurrect our loved ones from death. I hope this has brought you even the slightest comfort, please know that Jehovah the God of all comfort will always be there comforting you through trials (2 Corinthians 1:3,4). If you are interested in more bible based comfort this is a good article: https://jw.org/en/publications/magazines/g201407/tragedy-loss-loved-one/
