Condolence: Dear Thompson Family: Please accept my deepest sympathy for the family and friends of John. We will never get used to losing our loved ones in death because as Ecclesiastes 3:11 says, we were created with everlasting life in view. But may you find comfort in knowing that Almighty God has promised that soon he will swallow up death forever along with the pain that it brings. (Isaiah 25:8) God has also promised that he will return John to you as it says at Psalms 37:29 and also Hosea 13:14. You can also learn more about what happens when a loved one dies at JW.org.
