    Dear Eldred, Clayton and Shawn and the Hines & Tillery family, There is no way to lessen the sorrow of losing someone so precious to your family as Mother. She was Daughter, Sister, Wife, Aunt, Cousin and Friend of many and will be much remembered and much missed. But, please remember that the late Mary B. Mann and the rest of the Mann family and friends care very much and wish your family strength and comfort at this sad time. We have the greatest respect for the Hines/Tillery family. As you grieve, know that we are remembering your family and honoring Gilda's memory. Sometimes it's hard to understand, Why certain things must be. But there's a reason for everything, Beyond our power to see. And we find comfort in our hearts, To know the ones we love will find. Eternal happiness and lasting peace, In our great heaven. We know that your family has the strength in them to move on. Mrs. Gilda, was our true angel in the passing of our mother and brother in 2017. Your family will be in our thoughts and prayers. With Deepest Sympathy, Lonnie, Michael, Reginald, Ivory, Jr. , Jalecia and Calvin, Jr. Mann. Mrs. Gilda, you have earned your wings.

    It saddens us to hear you are mourning the loss of your loved one. May you find strength and comfort from the words of Psalms 34:18. It reads: “Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit." Our loving God is there for us if we ask for his help (1 John 5:14). He didn't intend for us to grow old and die. He thus has made the SURE promise of a resurrection RIGHT HERE ON EARTH when it is restored to a beautiful paradise (Psalms 37:9-11, 29; Acts 24:15; Isaiah 55;11). Can you see yourself welcoming back to life your loved ones? What a joy it will bring all of us. You can go online to JW.ORG and find out more about this resurrection.
