The family of Robert John Steinhaus has received the following condolences.
Death breaks into our lives with irresistible force, often when we are completely unprepared, and it robs us of our loved ones. None of us are immune to its ravages. So it is not surprising if we feel at a loss when it comes to coping with death and its aftermath. Maybe you have wondered: Is there any hope for our loved ones that have died? John 5:28, 29 says, "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his (Jesus') voice and come out." So, based on that scripture our dear loved ones will have the opportunity to live again. Please accept my deepest sympathy, and for more comforting information you may visit jw.org.
