  1. Dear family I’m so sorry for your loss. I pray the God of all comfort (Psalms 83:18 JeJehovah & 2Corinthians 1:3,4) will comfort your hearts while we await His Kingdom government that Jesus prayed for in the Lord’s Prayer. The Bible promises us He will soon end sickness (Isaiah 33:24) and death (Revelation 21:3-5) and make all things new.

    • Thank you A.B. for your condolences. We take comfort in knowing mom is safely in Jehovah’s memory (Job 14:13-15) and look forward to the day Jesus spoke of, when “all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” (John 5:28, 29)
