To the Washington family, I am deeply sorry to read the death of your dear loved one. Death is certainly an enemy that take those we love leaving much hurt and emptiness in our hearts. We are not left without hope of a better future. Jesus Christ demonstrated his power and desire to awaken those asleep in the memorial tombs (graves) to life on a Paradise earth. Yes, the time is fast approaching when the reality of the many blessings Jesus promised will be fulfilled. Please read John 5:28,29; Psalm 37:10, 11 and for more clarification visit jw.org
