    To the family of the late Doris Ashford: We are keeping you all in prayer during this very difficult time. Tink and I enjoyed visiting with her whenever we came home to Morehead city. Tink is heart broken and so am I. Tink is sending his love to you all and we know she is in a better place. We love you all.

    Family, Our Heavenly Father Jehovah never intended for us to go through pain, suffering, and death. Jehovah God knows exactly how you are feeling and what you are going through during this time of sorrow. As you think about the wonderful memories of your loved one also take a moment and read the words found at 1Peter 5:7;which expresses the love and concern Jehovah has for you.

    I am sending my condolences to the family. When someone we love dies its very painful. But the Bible talks about God doing away with pain at Rev 21:4. May the God of comfort provide solace to your family at this time.

    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.
