    From the start of human suffering, not a single teardrop has gone unnoticed by our heavenly Father. He  notices the pain that we suffer. According to his Word, he will bring an end to all suffering. By means of his Kingdom, he will drastically change the human condition for the best. Revelation 21:3-5

    To the Penn Family and my dearest friend Mrs, Brenda Gregg, Please know that you are in my prayers as you mourn the loss and celebrate the life of your dad, brother, uncle and friend. I only wish that I could be with you physically as you go through this period of bereavement. I am content in the fact that the Penn family that I know believes that there is eternal life in death. What a BEAUTIFUL PROMISE!! As my family lifts you up in prayer, remember that Earth has NO sorrows that HEAVEN cannot heal.

    To The Familyand Friends of Mr. Lawerence , Life is such a precious gift from our God Jehovah (Psalms 83:18) and when that life is lost it brings such great sorrow. The Bible promises at Acts 24:14 "...there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and unrighteousness ." The Bible assures use that our love ones will live again when God allows Jesus to call them back to life to live on a paradise earth. Psalms 37:11 says "the meek will possess the earth and they will find exquisite delight in the abundance of peace." The Bible guarantees a bright future for obedient mankind. Please put your hope in Gods promises.

    My sincere condolences to the family for your loss. May you find comfort in God's promise of a resurrection on a paradise earth where suffering and death will be no more. John 5:28,29. Revelation 21:3-5. You can learn more about the marvelous resurrection hope and Jehovah's purpose for mankind and the earth that will be accomplished through his son Christ Jesus and the heavenly kingdom government Sincerely, C.Peoples
