I would like to send my condolences to the McClendon family. As servants of Jehovah we do have the hope of resurrection but even Jesus gave way to tears when his friend Lazarus died. (John 11:35) But his sisters knew that this was only temporary and just as Lazarus sisters believed he would rise so we too have the same hope. Please take comfort in Rev. 21:3-5 when death, pain and sorrow will be a thing of the past and will not be called to mind. Jehovah has promised in verse 5: “Look! I am making all things new.” Also, he says: “Write, because these words are faithful and true.” Take comfort in the scriptures. I look forward to meeting him them.
