    With our deepest sympathies, the team at South Rocky Mount wishes your family all the comfort the Lord can give. Myrna was a gift to our clinic with her sense of humor and her positive outlook on life. She had the ability to find the good in every situation, and she had the ability to make all of us laugh when we wanted to cry. We will truly miss her smile.

    Comfort for you and the family. At John 5:28, 29, Jesus said: “Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” This means that all the dead in Sheol, our loved ones included, will come back to life. Acts 24:15 reveals more about this grand event, stating: “There is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.” So even “the unrighteous,” many individuals who did not know and serve Jehovah, will get a future opportunity to gain God’s favor. Where will this resurrection occur? Psalm 37:29 states: “The righteous themselves will possess the earth, and they will reside forever upon it.” Think of what that means! Families and friends torn apart by death will again meet here on earth. As you think of enjoying good times with those whose companionship you once treasured, it is reasonable for your heart to swell with happiness. Want to know more? Want more comfort?

    I'm truly sorry to hear about your recent loss. It is a very difficult time for those close to Myrna. May you find some comfort in the words of 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, we can totally rely on our Loving God. He also has made the sure promise of a resurrection right here on earth when it is restored to a beautiful paradise (Acts 24:15; Psalms 37:9-11, 29, Isaiah 55:11). Then death will be gone forever (Isaiah 25:8; Revelation 21:3,4) Find out more about this resurrection online at JW.ORG

    The Creator of the heavens and the earth has promised death will be no more. (Rev 21:4) Sorry for the loss of your loved one. My condolences are with you and family as you grieve. May the God of all comfort brings you comfort and strengthens you from the scriptures as you endure the loss of your loved one. God promises that he will resurrect millions of people who have died. "There is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and unrighteous." (2 Cor 1:3-4; Heb 2:15; John 5:28-29) For additional information please visit I can also be reached at
