To say we are all heart broken is an understatement. Melanie was my god-child, and I regret not seeking her out more often to just talk and pass the time of day. You will be missed so much!

My sincerest condolences,

I would like to share with you all what has helped me so much to bear the pain of losing a loved one in death. The Bible is an incredible source of comfort during our most difficult of times. In it we learn of the wonderful hope those that have died have. Acts 24:15 states, "And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous." Here I am comforted because this scripture teaches me that God will bring back to life those we have lost.

To learn more about the resurrection hope, please visit jw. org. There you will also find an article titled, "Help For Those Who Are Who Grieve."

Once again, I am very sorry.
