                                                    There's a land beyond the river, That we call the sweet forever
                                                               And we only reach that shore by faith's decree;
                                                  One by one we'll gain the portals, There to dwell with the immortals, 
                                                                  When they ring the golden bells for you and me.

    Accept our sincere condolences. May you find some comfort in the words of 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4 which reads: "3 Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our trials" Yes, we can ask for help and rely on 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). Be confident that this is SURE to happen because Isaiah 55:11 ensures us of this. Find out more online at JW.ORG

    Delores we are so sorry about the loss of your mother. Even at 91 years, it's not enough...we always want our mother to be with us. But we know that she is now resting with the Lord and we take comfort in that. We are praying that God grant you the strength and comfort you need at this difficult time.

    God has called one of His angles home. My prayers are with the family in this hour. Be strong in the Lord, because Ecclesiastes 3:1 says “to everything there is a season ,and a time to every purpose under the heaven,” He does not make any mistakes.

    I wish to express my deepest and sincerest condolences to the family. Words alone cannot ease the pain when grieving the loss of a love one. The Bible provides comfort during these difficult times. Revelation 21:3-4 states, "And he(GOD) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away". May God give you comfort in your loving memories and in His promise that soon we will never experience losing our love ones we will be able to see them again once they are resurrected John 5:28-29. May these scriptures bring comfort and calmness of heart to you during the difficult days

    I am saddened to hear of the transition of your mother, grandmother, great grandmother, aunt, cousin, friend. She is indeed in the presence of God. Although we grieve her absence from us here on earth, please let us celebrate her transition into external life. Per John 3:16, "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."
