I am very sorry for the loss of your beloved, Donnie. Please know that Jehovah God is aware of your pain and he cares for you. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) . I pray that you are able to find comfort in God’s promise of paradise where there will be no more pain and sorrow (Revelation 21:4,5) and the many wonderful memories of your beloved becoming a reality in the future resurrection in paradise. (Acts 24:15). Please accept my sincere condolences. (JW.org)
We did not know Donnie, but we regret the sorrow you feel – we grieved the loss of a 21 year old son. We can tell you that as time passes you will be able to remember more of the good times and dwell less on the loss of Donnie. We found that each person grieves in a different way and at different times, so we encourage each of you to allow for those differences in your families.
We are of the Christian faith and even in our pain we came to understand that God is still sovereign. May you find comfort as you walk through this “valley of the shadow of death” and may friends share their good memories of Donnie with you.
