Our sincere condolences to the family. The Bible has beautiful and comforting scripture promises for the future at Isaiah 26:19; “Your dead will live. And the earth will let those powerless in death come to life”. We can also find comfort from Jesus words at John 5:28-29 “The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out” To learn more about this promise please visit our website: jw.org and view the comforting video; What is the Condition of the Dead?
