    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 also are cordially invited to the memorial of Jesus death. The means by which the promise of a paradise is possible. Saturday March 31st, 2018 at 7:30 pm. Location : Radisson Hotel, 135 S Main St., High Point, NC 27260

    To the family and friends my deepest condolences are with you as you grieve during this most difficult time. In the near future God promises that death will be gone forever and violence and wickedness will be a thing of the past. (Psalms 37:9-11 & Revelation 21:3&4)

    We are so sorry Kevin and Pam for your loss. We don't know what to say except that we love you. We can't understand exactly how you feel, but Jehovah does and will keep raising you up. We hope that our prayers will help a little. Revelation 21:3,4 reads; "The tent of God is with mankind, and He will reside with them, and they will be His people. And God himself will be with them. And He will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.

    Wc can look forward to the day when there will be no more sickness and death. Revelation 21:4 says: "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". God gives us "the power beyond what is normal" to make it through each passing day. Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! (Psalm 36:7; 1 Peter 5:7)
