    Estimados familiares,
    Les enviamos nuestro más sincero pesame. Y a la vez nos gustaria compartir con ustedes una esperanza para el futuro, que puede darles consuelo en estos momentos mas dificiles de su vida. Se encuentra en el libro biblico de Hechos capitulo 24:15 que dice que habra una resurreccion de las personas que se han dormido en la muerte. Y viviran en esta tierra convertida en un paraíso sin sentir los efectos del dolor, las enfermedades, y la muerte. Y viviran para siempre junto a sus seres queridos felizmente por toda una eternidad, como es mencionado en Revelacion 21:3,4. Si les gustaria saber mas sobre esta esperanza sírvanse a visitar el sitio JW.org/es.
