    My heartfelt sympathies are with the Torrence family for the lose of your beloved Mildred. Her passing is a devestating experience for your family, however, our Heavenly Father Jehovah feels your pain and want you to know that Mildred have the resurrection hope. That is why he sent his son, Jesus who gave his life in order that Mildred could live again. The Bible assures Mildred of the hope in the resurrection as stated at Acts 24:15, “there is going to bra resurrection of both the righteous and unrighteous”. At that time God will remember everything about Mildred and bring her back. Therefore during this time of sorrow draw close to Jehovah god and he will sustain and stregthen your family. ( go to JW.

    While words fail to capture the pain of losing a loved one, we look forward to the time when words will fail to capture the joy of having our heavenly Father return your dear one to you.
