    May God comfort you during your time of sorrow. She was a great family friend and I will always remember her genuine kindness, thoughtfulness and bear hugs, but to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. Marcella McCaskill & Family, Gastonia, NC

    Accept our heartfelt sympathy in your recent loss. May you find strength and comfort from 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, our loving God is there for us if we allow him to 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. ~~~ You are also cordially invited to the memorial of Jesus death. The means by which the promise of a paradise is possible.

    Death is like sleep in that the dead are unconscious and cannot do anything. However, the Creator of life can bring the dead back by means of a resurrection. In proof of that, Jehovah empowered Jesus to raise several dead people to life. Please feel free to read (Ecclesiastes 9:5; John 11:11, 43, 44). Also, for more spiritual comfort please visit
