My condolence to the family. The loss of a loved one is about the most tragic event we will face in this world. But we can be thankful that our father has made provisions for us to be reunited with our loved ones again. John 5:28,29, When Jehovah calls then your loved one will answer [based on Job 14;14] he will be on the beautiful earth Jehovah promised [ 2 PETER 3:13]. May you find comfort in knowing that Mr. Miles is in no pain he is resting in the memory of Jehovah.

To James Miles family and friends, I seen my deepest condolences. It is always hurtful to lose someone so dear to you. What helps me is to know they are no longer in any pain and the bible likens death to a peaceful sleep (John 11:11-14). How comforting to know! It also promises a time when we can see them again in the coming resurrection (Acts 24:15). But in the meantime, know that our God Jehovah will comfort those in need (2 Corinthians 1:2-4). I hope these words will be of some comfort.
