May you find comfort in knowing that your mother is safe in the memory of God, who will remember every detail about (her) and bring (her) back to life again in the future because of what the Bible says at: John 10:17.

    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.

    William and Cynthia, part of your earthly church family, just want to say that we are praying for you and your family during this time of mourning. We didn't get a chance to know your mother, but because we know and love you, we feel she has touched our lives in a positive way. Please allow me to leave you with this poem that may help you smile in remembrance of your mother.... “There’s magic in a Mother’s touch, and sunshine in her smile. There’s love in everything she does to make our lives worthwhile. We can find both hope and courage just by looking in her eyes. Her laughter is a source of joy, her works are warm and wise. There is a kindness and compassion to be found in her embrace and we see the light of heaven shining from a Mother’s face.” Author Unknown
