    To the family of Ms. Laura Jackson I am so very sorry for your lost, but know that God knows how much pain that you are feeling at this time. In his word the Bible at 1 Corinthians 15:26; it shows that God hates death and that he views it as an enemy and he has a longing to undo death by mean of the resurrection. He will resurrect those in his memory back to life . Jesus said himself at John 5:28 and 29 not to be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out. So this is a promise we will see our dead love one again.

    I would like to offer my condolences to the Jackson family. 83 years is quite an accomplishment according to the Bible (Psalm 90:10) and I know Ms. Laura has left you with many precious memories and will be greatly missed. Hopefully this scripture will give you comfort because Jehovah God (Psalm 83:18) is promising us he will do away with man's worst enemy, death. This is found for us at 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." The Bible also enlightens us at Hebrews 2:14b "so that through his (Jesus) death, he (Jesus) might bring to nothing the one having the means to cause death, that is, the Devil." For more comforting scriptures please visit: It has given me hope, 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 Matthew 6: 9, 10 will bring about these wonderful promises including the resurrection. John 6: 40 tells us: "For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who recognizes the Son and exercises faith in him should have everlasting life, and I will resurrect him on the last day." Also, Titus 1: 2 tells us this promise of a resurrection: "is based on a hope of the everlasting life that God, who cannot lie, promised long ago. 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." This is a wonderful promise made to us by our heavenly father and I pray it brings you comfort and hope. Jehovah invites you to throw all your burdens on him and he will sustain you in your time of grief. Again, I offer my sincere condolences to the family.
