May your hearts be filled with wonderful memories of the joyful times you've shared. May you also find strength in the comforting words found at 2 Corinthians 1:3,4.

Lamento mucho su pérdida, acepte mis sinceras condolencias. Espero que la familia Martinez encuentre algo de consuelo y fortaleza en la promesa de Jesús de la resurrección terrenal (Juan 5:28, 29) y en la renovada Tierra del Paraíso, donde la muerte es un enemigo (1 Corintios 15:26) que muy pronto será eliminado para siempre, y ninguna familia llorará la muerte de un ser querido (Apocalipsis 21: 4). Esta promesa ha sido dada por el Dios Todopoderoso Jehová (Salmos 83:18). Verdaderamente, ¡qué glorioso y casi increíble día será! Sin embargo, es una realidad porque Dios no puede mentir (Tito 1: 2). Para obtener más escrituras consoladoras y alentadoras sobre la resurrección, visite jw.org.
