To the loving family of J.D., I’m very sorry for the sad loss of your beloved J.D. and beloved father. Though I don’t know you, and I didn’t know your dear J.D. and dear father, please accept my deepest sympathy for you and your family in your painful loss. I know that years have gone by, but I just saw your memorial, and wanted to write because I’m hoping that by my sharing with you what continues to bring me comfort in my most painful losses in my life that you will find an added measure of comfort too. My beloved Mom and Dad and my beloved youngest brother have all died in the past little over 3 1/2 years and my brother died a little over 1 1/2 years ago suddenly and very unexpectedly at age 51. I think about the fact that they’re not suffering in any way, and that means a lot to me! And I look forward to seeing and being with them again when they’re resurrected back to life here on the earth that will be restored to Paradise conditions! I hope to be here then to welcome them each back to life with a close and loving hug! Acts 24:15 promises “that there is going to be a resurrection.” Ecclesiastes 9:11b explains why many die; that “time and unexpected events (Or, “unforeseen occurrence”) overtake them all.” 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4 speak of God as “the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God.” And Isaiah 65:17b tells us that the former things will not be called to mind, neither will they come up into the heart.” - Thus the intense sadness that we experience now, won’t even be remembered after Jehovah God resurrects our loved ones; thereby undoing the sad effects of death and the pain being separated from them brings. Our loving God doesn’t cause sad things to happen to our loved ones, as James 1:13 helps us to understand. There it reads, ‘When under trial, let no one say: “I am being tried by God.’ For with evil things God cannot be tried nor does he himself try anyone.’” Jesus’ words to his disciples gives comfort as to our loved ones; speaking of his friend Lazarus’ death as sleep, then clearly saying “Lazarus has died.”- John 11:11-15, 38-44 Then Jesus raised Lazarus back to life showing what he will do for our loved ones in the resurrection! Revelation 21:4 tells of the wonderful time when no one will ever die again; and then no more mourning or sadness, “And (God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” Psalms 37:10, 11, 29 tell of the hope for many upon their resurrection, to be welcomed back to life by their loved ones and then to live here on the earth when it’s restored to Paradise conditions! Then no wicked, the meek will find exquisite delight in the abundance of peace to live forever upon the earth! To live the way our Creator meant for us to live, then even the animals will be peacef and safe as Isaiah 11:6-9 says. No more sickness of any kind as Isaiah 33:24 says, ‘No resident will say: “I am sick.’” Then no more tragedies to separate loving family members from each other! Your beloved J.D. wasn’t old but I still want to share Job 33:25 where it promises, "Let his flesh become fresher (Or, "healthier") than in youth; Let him return to the days of his youthful vigor." I hope that you are finding comfort in your memories, perhaps by looking at pictures. And I hope that these and other verses will help you too. Romans 15:4 say, "For all the things that were written beforehand were written for our instruction, so that through our endurance and through the comfort from the Scriptures we might have hope." Please go to for more comfort. Take care, Sincerely Yours, Cindy Boyer
