Dear family. I am so sorry to have read of the death of . Please accept my sincere condolences. I would like to share something that I have personally found to be comforting. It is found in the Bible at John 5:28, 29 and Revelation 21:4. These verses tell us that soon God is going to bring about a resurrection of our dear loved ones as well as do away with all causes we have for suffering, including sickness and death. Knowing this has always comforted me and it is my hope that these thoughts will comfort your family also. Additional comforting scriptures can be found at www.jw.org search:comfort.

What a great friend she was. Our thoughts and prayers are with her dear family of which she was very proud. I know God will
grant all of you the comfort you need, as she served a "GREAT GOD". She will be missed immensely, however, we know one day we can see her again if we keep the faith and love for Jesus she had.
