Sincere condolences to the Family and friends of Bennie T. Archuleta. Having lost such a strong foundation of a wonderful family can be very difficult to accept for all. We look to those who have set a fine example as a wife, mother, and grandmother. We are not without hope, we are promised to see our loved ones restored to life. John 5:28,29 and Acts 24:15 I pray that your family will be comforted and hopeful by his words of promise. Sincerely, Adeline V. jw.org

Dear Archuleta Family. I am very sorry to hear about you beloved Bennie. it's hard to loose someone we love. that is why I love Gods Promise that he says at Revalation 21:3,4 that death will be no more. and he also says that all those in the memorial tombs will come out at John 5:28. please visit Jw.org for more encouraging bible based information.

Please accept my sincere condolences for your recent loss. My heart goes out to you and your family. I have always received comfort from the Bibles’ word at Philippians 4:7 which reads “and the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your heart and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus”. I hope you can receive comfort from these words as well. Margo Simmons
