Please accept my condolences for your loss of Jonathan. As the days and weeks pass, and as you try to return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends. I pray that you take the time to examine the comfort our Creator offers in his word at Revelation 21:3.4 and Job 14:14,15.

May the family find comfort in your loving memories, and in knowing that God is "near to those that are broken at heart; and those who are crushed in spirit He saves" (Psalm 34:18). Our loving Creator, Jehovah God, has promised to soon "swallow up death forever...and wipe the tears from all faces" (Isaiah 25:8). With deepest sympathy.
