To the Wheeler family I send my deepest condolences. Tony’s life was cut short by an unforeseen occurrence. Sickness and death plague us all. When it strikes we are left grieving for the ones we lost. What we do have is a memory of their lives and how they lived. However, there is much more to look forward to. We can look forward to a time where “sickness and death will be no more”- Revelation 21:3,4. Jesus performed resurrections while he was on earth and then when he expired he was resurrected by his Heavenly Father Jehovah. God is eager to do it again. 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.
You have a lot to look forward to according to these promises would you not agree? It is my sincere hope and prayer that you find comfort and peace in the promises that God holds out in his holy word, the Bible.

Peace and love.
Denise L.

My condolences to the Wheeler families. I'm sorry to hear about the loss of dear Anthony. Some Bible scriptures that have helped me during times of loss include Isaiah 26:19 and Psalm 37:28,29 which states in part: "Your dead ones will live...They will rise up". And the Bible also says "The righteous themselves will possess the earth and they will forever reside upon it". Therefore the Bible promises that we may be reunited with our loved ones lost in death by means of an earthly resurrection. This is further confirmed by John 5:28,29 which says "Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". This is possible thanks to Jesus Christ's ransom sacrifice. Thus we have a genuine hope of everlasting life in a world without wickedness or suffering.
