Our deepest sympathy to the Oglesby Family. One of the hardest challenges we have to go through is loosing someone we dearly love, and we are so sorry your have gone through that. Cherish those fond memories you have had through the years, and share them with your loved ones, that can be a real source of comfort. Another source of comfort is found at Isaiah 41:10 which says: “Do not be afraid, for I am with you. Do not be anxious for I am your God. I will fortify you, yes, I will help you, I will really hold on to you with my right hand of righteousness.” How comforting it is to know that Jehovah God is there for you. We sincerely hope these words comfort and help you, and may Jehovah, the God of all comfort, comfort and strengthen you as you go through the days ahead. We love you Melicia, and our prayers are with you.

Melicia, we want to express our deepest sympathy and send our heartfelt condolences. We pray that you find comfort knowing that our Heavenly Father Jehovah cares for you and will comfort you during this time. (2Corinthians 1:3,4; 2Thessalonians 2:16,17) Continue to hold on to the wonderful hope that Jesus promised us, that we may see our loved ones again when he said at John 5:28,29 that there will be a resurrection. May we also keep our eyes on the promises of our Heavenly Father who promised that one day no one will say I am sick, (Isaiah 33:24) and that all our pain, sorrow and even death will be no more. (Revelation 21:3,4) Many prayers are with the Oglesby family. May you have peace.
