    I am at a loss for words to express my sadness for you. I had the blessed opportunity of knowing your mom and I know heaven just received one of the most special angels. And the loss has more of an impact with Mother's Day so very close. Time passes but you always remember people that have impacted your life. It has been so many years that have passed. But, I can remember running into her on the bus. Or at the grocery store. Her hug and smile brought back past memories. It was a pleasure to attend school and worship with you and your family. Peace and Blessings Woodville Presbyterian Church

    To The Family, I am sorry to hear of you loss. The death of a loved one can be a very challenging time for the entire family. I hope that you can find comfort and solace in God’s Word the Bible. The Bible says at Acts 24:15 “…that there is going to be a resurrection…” May this verse and other verses provide some relief during this difficult time.

    Please accept my heartfelt condolence on the loss of your dear one; Ms. Baker. 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 www.jw.org for more of God's marvelous promises that 'is around the corner'.

    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.". Please be assured of these future events because God himself declares 'I am making all things new' and 'these words are faithful and true.' ~Revelation 21:5
