    Dr. Luster was my dear neighbor and friend. I loved visiting her. She was brilliant, witty and thoughtful. They say laughter is good medicine. Being around Youvonne was good medicine for me; and I will surely miss her. - "Sandy"

    Accept our sincere condolences in your recent loss. May you find some comfort in the words of Psalms 34:18 which reads: " Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit " Yes, we can ask for help and rely on God. He also has made the sure promise of a resurrection right here on earth when it is restored to a beautiful paradise. (Acts 24:15; Psalms 37:9-11, 29). Be confident that this is SURE to happen because Isaiah 55:11 ensures us of this. Find out more online at JW.ORG
