One week ago our baby girl and love of our life passed away in her sleep at only 28 months. She had been completely healthy. We had zero warning. I went up to get her from a nap as I had done many times and since then nothing but horror. Cayden (7) and Reese (5) were home at the time and saw me come down screaming call 911. They saw the grief and horror on my wife's face. They saw the police. They saw the ambulance. They pleaded with fate to allow her to come back and they would give up… Continue

I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your beautiful daughter. My son passed away Feb. 29th...the same way. I went to wake him from bed and he was gone. I'm so sorry.
The sudden death of your daughter is a devastating tragedy. This is totallly unexpected, for who imagines that your child will die before the parents do? Your daughter who has become the center of you and your wifes' boundless love is suddenly the focus of your boundless grief.
You and your family need endurance and comfort. During times like these many, myself included, have been comforted by the resurrection hope. The scriptures indicate that it is possible to be reunited with your dead loved one in the near future, right here on earth under peaceful, righteous conditions. And at that time humans will have to prospect of enjoying perfect health, and they will never have to die again.
We know this to be true because Jesus is both willing and able to fulfill it. Jesus tells us at John 5:28,29 "Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his (Jesus) voice and come out."
Yes, Jesus promised that millions now dead will live again on this earth and have the prospect of remaining on it forever under peaceful, paradisaic conditions. Since Jesus made the promise, it is safe to assume that he is willing to fulfill it. Very soon according to 1 Corinthiams 15:26 "Death is to be brought to nothing."
Jehovah God, who started mankind off in a lovely garden, has promised to restore Paradise on this earth under the rule of his Heavenly Kingdom in the hands of Jesus Christ. In that restored Paradise, the human family will have the prospect of enjoying life without end, free from all sickness and death. The Bible promises that you can see your daughter again according to Revelation 21:4. Titus 1:2 tells us that "God can not Lie", so we can have full confidence in what the scriptures say.
If your heart yearns to see your daughter again, Jehovah's Witnesses will gladly assist you, your wife and your two other daughters, to learn how you can make this sure hope your very own. You can go to www.watchtower.org.
