    To the Franklin family. I am so sorry for your loss. The Bible says at Isaiah 25:8 That Jehovah will swallow up death forever and we can see our loved ones again. L-conley@hotmail.com

    To the Family and Friends of Vivian Franklin: I would like to express my deepest sympathy. I am sorry to hear of your loss. The death of a love one is a painful experience. Our Heavenly Father is well aware of the hurt you feel. May the God of all comfort provide you with strength in this most difficult time (2 Corinthians 1:3,4). God promises that soon He will remove all causes of pain, suffering, and death (Revelation 21:3,4). We know that Almighty Jehovah God has not only the power but also yearns to fulfill this promise. Until that time, may you find comfort in this promise and treasure the special memories you shared.

    To The Franklin Family, 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.

    To The Family, I am sorry to hear of your loss. The death of a loved one is a difficult time for the entire family. It is my wish that you can find comfort in God's Word the Bible. The Bible says at Ezekiel 18:32 " ' I do not take pleasure in the death of anyone', declares the Sovereign Lord Jehovah. ’So turn back and live.'” In this verse the Bible is assuring all mankind that the True God is not the cause of death and that it is something he dislikes. I hope that you can find some relief and solace in this verse and other scriptures during challenging time

    I wanted to send my love and condolences to the Franklin family. I'm very sorry for your loss. Losing a loved one in death is a devastating experience that leaves us with feelings of sorrow and grief. However, know that God is going to replace your sadness with joy, and a hope for the future. How? Isaiah 25:8 says, "He will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe the tears from all faces." So here Jehovah God has promised that He will eliminate death forever, wiping away the tears that come from losing the ones we love. Furthermore, God has given us the hope of the resurrection, which can mean being reunited with our dear loved ones, once again on a Paradise earth. (John 5:28,29; Revelation 21:4)

    I know the Franklin family and friends have saddened hearts because of losing Vivian recently in death. When our loved ones fall asleep in death, the pain and grief seems unbearable. So I want to share this beautiful scripture where our heavenly father, Jehovah, (Psalm 83:18) promises us that he is going to do away with man's greatest enemy, death. Rev. 21: 4; "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore." When our loved ones fall asleep in death, the pain and grief seems unbearable. Our loving God Jehovah understands how we feel and he comforts us by means of his word the Bible. ." Jehovah invites you to throw all your burdens on him and he will sustain you in your time of grief. (Psalm 34:18) For more comforting scriptures please visit: http://bit.ly/1K38EFt It has provided me with many more scriptures that have given me comfort, strengthened my faith and helped me find the answer to Why? I know it will do the same for you. God's kingdom that Jesus taught us to pray for at Matt. 6: 9, 10 will bring about these wonderful promises including the resurrection. (John 5: 28, John 6:40, John 11:23-25) Isaiah 26:19 "Your dead will live......And the earth will let those powerless in death come to life." Isaiah 25:8 "He will swallow up death forever. For Jehovah himself has spoken it." It is my prayer these scriptures will give you comfort in your grief. Again, I offer my sincere condolences to the family.

    I am very sorry for your loss. However, Almighty God has provided a guarantee of a resurrection to all people in His memory by resurrecting Jesus from the dead. (Psalm 83:18; Acts 17:31) We will be able to see our loved ones again on a restored earth. (Psalm 37:11, 29) I hope this brings you peace.
