Luke 8:40 gives an account of Jesus being approached by a man named Jairus, whose12-year-old daughter was gravely ill. Shortly thereafter, word came that the girl had died. This news left Jairus heartbroken, but Jesus told him, “Have no fear, only exercise faith,” (Luke 8:50). At the family’s home, Jesus went in to the lifeless girl. Taking her by the hand, he said: “Maiden, I say to you, Get up!” (Luke 8:54). What happened? Immediately the maiden rose and began walking. The ressurrection is a wonderful provision provided by our grand Creator Jehovah (John 5:28,29). I hope this account gives you the comfort you need during this difficult time.

My condolences to the family for your loss. 2 Cor. 1:3,4 describes God as the Father of tender mercies who comforts us in all our trials. Along with your cherished memories, may Jehovah God (Psalm 83:18) provide you with the comfort you need during this difficult time.

My deep condolences and sympathy to you. May the God of comfort strengthen you. In God's time, you will all be able to echo Job’s words addressed to the Creator: “You will call, and I myself shall answer you.” Praise be to Jehovah, who yearns to bring back to life all those who are in his memory!—Job 14:15.

So sorry to hear of Roger's passing. We attended Lynden Christian School together and since we usually lined up alphabetically, Roger would be right next to me which was great because he was quite funny. How he could make us laugh! He was also very kind and had a wisdom that came from the heart.
