    My condolences go out to the family. As you prepare to lay your loved one to rest, may you find comfort from your Bibles at Psalms 34:18. “ HE” is close to the brokenhearted and crushed in spirit. Nahum 1:7 tells us Jehovah is good, a stronghold in the day of distress. He is mindful of those seeking refuge in him.

    I would like to offer my condolences for your loss. I hope you will find comfort in knowing that Jehovah, the God of all comfort, will soon eliminate all grief and provide permanent consolation when “all those in the memorial tombs will hear [Christ’s] voice and come out”! (John 5:28, 29) God promises that “he will do away with death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces.” (Isa. 25:8) Then, instead of having to “weep with those who weep,” all earth’s inhabitants will “rejoice with those who rejoice.”?—Rom. 12:15.

    Gustus Family, The loss of a loved one is never easy and it can be very hard to say how you feel in words, but our Heavenly Father Jehovah is here for you and he expresses these words found in the Bible at 1Peter 5:7. Jehovah God wants you to know that he cares for you.

    And I heard a Voice from Heaven saying, "Write this down: Blessed are those who die in The LORD from now on. Yes, Says The SPIRIT, they are Blessed indeed, for they will Rest from their hard work; for their good deeds follow them!"- Revelations 14:13 (NLT). It is with deep sorrow that we bid our Brother Minister sweet Rest in The LORD JESUS CHRIST. He has been a long time good Friend, vibrant Spirit, and sincere counselor. Our Prayers with His Loved ones. Senior Pastor-Elder J. G. & 1st Lady Kimberly Willis along with our Church Family. Cox Memorial F.W.B. Church, Durham, N.C.
