    So sorry to hear about Gladys. These are moments difficult to endure. May you find some comfort in the scripture found at Nahum 1:7 which reads: "Jehovah is good, a stronghold in the day of distress. He is mindful of those seeking refuge in him." Yes you can totally rely on our Loving God. He also has made the SURE promise that there will be a resurrection right here on earth when it is restored into a paradise ( John 5:28, 29, Psalms 37:9-11, 29; Isaiah 55:11) Accept my sincere condolences and find out more about this resurrection online at JW.ORG
