    I’m so sorry to hear this. I loved Seth as a young boy when his mom was married to my brother and I still considered him my nephew. Much love to Isabelle and John… I know this is a really rough time for you guys. Izzy, If you get my email, please reach out!

    Sincere condolences for the tragic loss of your son.
    Our earth is full of pain, suffering, and sorrow. Losing a loved one in death was never part of our Grand Creators purpose for humans.
    God has promised to reunite us with our loved ones and to do away with our greatest enemy death.
    Isaiah 25:8: “He will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces. The reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth, for Jehovah himself has spoken it.”
    Revelation 21: 3,4 promises: “With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”
    May the hope in these scriptures bring you comfort and strength to endure during this difficult time. Please see jw.org
    most sincerely d mullins
