My heart aches for you, Carolyn, John and the Marimon family to lose in death your precious loved one John, way too soon. Since John loved reading the Bible, I’m quite sure he read the following scriptures many times. Words are so limited that can give comfort, so I would like to share with you beautiful scripture where our loving heavenly Father, (Psalm 83:18), wants you to throw all your burdens on him and he will sustain you in your time of grief because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7, Psalm 34:18
None of us are guaranteed tomorrow, but we are all guaranteed a resurrection.
Our precious savior, Jesus, promises us at John 6: 40; “For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who recognizes the Son and exercises faith in him should have everlasting life, and I will resurrect him on the last day”.
And again at: John 5: 28; “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out…”
And also at John 11:23-25; “Jesus said to her: “I am the resurrection and the life.” The one who exercises faith in me, even tho he dies, will come to life.”
I pray that Jesus’s promise to reunite us with our loved ones on resurrection day will carry you through the difficult days ahead and gradually replace your tears of grief with tears of joy as you reflect on your precious memories of happier times with John.
Job asked at Job 14:14; “If a man dies, can he live again?” Job answers at Job 14:15; “You (Jehovah) will call and I will answer.” Just like Job, we can have confidence in the resurrection hope.

I pray you will find comfort reading the above scriptures in your personal Bible and to please watch this beautiful video (song 144) entitled “Keep Your Eyes on the Prize” https://tv.jw.org/#en/video/VODChildren/pub-pksn_24_VIDEO If you had the opportunity to see your dead loved ones again, alive and in perfect health here on earth, would you take it?
