My condolences to the family. Please be comforted by the Bibles promise of the resurrection. John 5:28,29, Acts 24:15. If you would like to learn more about the wonderful promises in the Bible, please visit jw.org.
James’s family: I'm so sorry for your loss. I went through a similar situation and I was very helped by the hope that I found in the Bible in John 5:28, which says, "Do not amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". I am sending you a link with more information on this hope.
