My sincere condolences and prayers are with the family. May our heavenly Father Jehovah comforts your family in all the trials. 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4.

Jehovah hates death; he views it as an enemy. (1 Corinthians 15:26) He has a longing to conquer that enemy, to undo death by means of the resurrection. He yearns to bring back those who are in his memory and to see them live on earth again.—Job 14:14, 15.
