Private Condolence

Please allow me to express my deepest condolences for your family's loss. I hope that you will find comfort in the real hope that the Bible gives of being reunited with your loved one again. In the Bible at John 5:28, 29 it reads, "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.". The Bible there promises that your loved one will come back to life again in the resurrection. (Acts 24:15) The Bible also promises that soon death will be no more. (Revelation 21:3, 4) I encourage you to visit JW.org for more information about this wonderful hope.

Love, Sandy and the NC Nisbets

Dear Nisbet Family, I am so sorry for your loss. When we lose a love one in death it is never easy. During this difficult time may your family find comfort in Gods word the Bible that soon we will see our love ones again. -John 5:28,29
