I wanted to express my heartfelt condolences to all of Mark’s family. Death is the hardest thing we have to deal with in life. I know my words can’t change anything and can do little to ease the pain you are feeling, so I pray that the God of comfort calm your hearts and help you heal. (2 Thessalonians 2:16,17) Lean on Him in the days to follow. For the Bible’s answers to questions about grief and death please visit JW.org.
