    What a beautiful Lady. Ruth was a part of my life for as long as I can remember. She never raised her voice or said a cross word that I ever heard. She loved her God and her family above all. She was respected and loved by so many. I feel blessed and privileged to have had her in my life and heart ALL my life. Thank you Ruth, for teaching me the lessons you taught me. I loved you then and I love you now and will keep you in my heart forever.

    Big Mama, I am so glad I saw you at the grocery store not long ago. As usual, you looked beautiful, 102 years is not enough time to love you, we could all take a note from your life, how to raise a wonderful family maintaining your grace and wisdom to pass down to the generations. Oh the memories your family have to cherish of you. I know you are in glory with our Lord, what a grand time you are having! God Bless over your family, you will surely be missed.

    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.

    To the Family. Please accept my sincere condolences. God's Word is a great source of comfort and hope during difficult times and Jehovah God'the God of all comfort' (2 Corinthians 1:3) is fully aware of your sadness. Revelation 21:4 promises, "He will wipe out every tear" and will bring back to life those who sleep in death as Acts 24:15 promises, "There is going to be a resurrection." ~Revelation 21:5

    Please accept my heartfelt condolence on the loss of your dear one; Ms. Washington. My family and I have found comfort in the Bible's promise of a time when death will be no more; - "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." - Revelation 21:4. May the memories of your loved one sustain you until God's promises are soon fulfilled - "For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who recognizes the Son and exercises faith in him should have everlasting life, and I will resurrect him on the last day."- John 6:40. Please visit for more of God's marvelous promises that 'is around the corner'.

    One of GOD's angels went back home to be with him this past Sunday afternoon. Some people are special and then some people are SPECIAL. Words cant describe the MANY ways BIG MAMA showed her love for not only me but OTHERS. That's the gift! Most think family will be here forever in body...not the case...but in SPIRIT forever will they live on. I am at peace with GOD's timing and decision because at 103, she has been there and done that. Love you BIG MAMA!
