My deepest condolences to the family and friends of James Hinton, I'm so sorry for your loss, losing a loved one in death is never easy and the pain can seem unbearable, death is one of mankind's greatest enemy, but God promised to conquer death by means of the resurrection Isaiah 33:24 said "and no resident will say I'm sick" also Revelation 21:4 God promised to wipe out all tears from our eyes and death will be no more all of this will soon become a reality when the scripture at John 5:28,29 be fulfill where Jesus saus " do not be amazed because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out. May these words bring you some comfort.

Dear loving family of James,
I'm very sorry for the sad and painful loss of your beloved husband, and father and brother James. Although I don't know you, and I didn't know your dear father and brother Jim, please accept my deepest sympathy for you and your family in your sad and painful loss.
I hope that by sharing with you what continues to help me in the losses of my beloved Mom and Dad and my beloved youngest brother, that you also will find some additional comfort in your grief. My dear brother was only 51 and died suddenly and very unexpectedly a little over a year ago, and they all died within the past little over 2 years and 10 months.
I think about the fact that they're not suffering, and that means a lot to me! And I think about them, and look forward intently to seeing them again when the resurrection takes place. I hope to be here at that wonderful time to welcome them each back to life with a close and loving hug!
Acts 24:15 promises "that there is going to be a resurrection." Ecclesiastes 9:11b tells why many die; that "time and unexpected events (Or, "unforeseen occurrence") overtake them all."
Our loving God doesn't cause sad things to happen to our loved ones as Job 34:10 helps us to understand. There it reads, "So listen to me, you men of understanding: It is unthinkable for the true God to act wickedly, for the Almighty to do wrong" and James 1:13, 'When under trial, let no one say: "I am being tried by God." For with evil things God cannot be tried, nor does he himself try anyone.'"
2 Corinthians 1:3, 4 calls God, "the God of all comfort who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God." Isaiah 65:17b tells us that "the former things will not be called to mind, nor will they come up into the heart." - So when Jehovah God resurrects our loved ones back to life; then the heartache, the intense and overwhelming sadness that we experience now will be forgotten, when we're once more reunited with our loved ones that we miss so much now!
Revelation 21:4 gives us this wonderful promise, "And (God) 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." - Just imagine a world with no tears of sorrow, no pain and no death!
Psalms 37:10, 11, 29 tell of the hope for many upon their resurrection, to be welcomed back to life by their loved ones and then to live here on the earth when it's restored to Paradise conditions; then no wicked, the meek will find their exquisite delight in the abundance of peace to live forever upon the earth! To live the way our Creator meant for us to live, then even the animals will be safe and peaceful as Isaiah 11:6-9 says. No more sickness of any kind - Isaiah 33:24 tells us 'No resident will say: "I am sick."' And then no more tragedies to separate loved family members from each other!
Job 33:25 shows that the old will grow younger again, "Let his flesh become fresher (Or, "healthier") than in youth; Let him return to the days of his youthful vigor."
I hope that you will find comfort, perhaps by looking at pictures of happy times spent making memories together. And I hope that these and other verses help you too. Romans 15:4 says, "For all the things that were written beforehand were written for our instruction, so that through our endurance and through the comfort from the Scriptures we might have hope."
Please look at www.jw.org for more comfort. Right now on the main page; there is the article, "What does the Bible say about Life and Death?"
Take care, and I truly hope that you will find some added comfort.
