I extend my heartfelt sympathy to the Sherman family. I know Buford will be sorely missed and fondly remembered. You can find great comfort in the hope for the future present in the bible. At Isaiah 25: 8, the Bible promises a time when God “will swallow up death forever.” Also, Acts 24:15 boldly states, "there is going to be a resurrection." The resurrection this verse talks about will give us the opportunity to see our lost loved ones again on Earth. I know it will be a joyous time when you can reunite with Buford! I invite you to visit jw.org for more information on this comforting hope.
