    Mother Cooper will truly be missed. I think The Lord I was able to spend her last days with her and let her know just how much she was loved and how much she meant to me and my family. Mother Cooper was never an in-law to me she was always family. She's in a much better place now where there's no more suffering, pain or sorrow. The kids and I will truly miss you. "The Luster's"

    I'm truly sorry to hear about your recent loss. It is a very difficult time; but I hope you can 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
