I am deeply sorry for your loss. Life is never supposed to be cut so short. While words cannot express the pain we feel when we lose our loved ones in death, the promise God gives us in Isaiah 25:8 can bring us much comfort where it says he “will swallow up death forever and wipe tears from all faces”. In the very near future, God has given us much to look forward to. We will soon be reunited with our loved ones by means of a resurrection, right here on earth. (acts 24:15). Until that time, keep close to your hearts the memories of Dewey and the time spent together. May the “God of All Comfort” be with you in this time of great sadness. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4)

I am so sorry for the loss of your beloved Dewey. This is never easy to face, in fact death can be viewed as an enemy. That's how our Creator Jehovah views it as according to 1 Cor. 15:26; which says, "And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing." May you find comfort in knowing this and that he has a longing to conquer that enemy, to undo death by means of the resurrection. Please visit for more comforting information.
