To the family of Elizabeth Anne Alau, I offer my heartfelt condolences. Suffering the loss of a loved one in death truly tests our endurance. Yet, we are assured at Romans that "through our endurance and through the comfort from the Scriptures we...have hope". Through your endurance and through the comforting words promised at Revelation 21:4, 5 may you find hope during this most trying time.-jw.org
