    Tesha, Keith and Tedra. My dear childhood friends and neighbors. I am so very sad to hear about the loss of your mom. One thing that I can say about Miss Shirley is that she definitely loved you guys. You have a great mother. I can close my eyes and see her standing to that door calling each of your names. She definitely had some lungs. My memories of her and you all are all great fond memories. She will be missed. I love you all and I am praying for your strength and comfort during this time.

    We're so sorry to hear you are mourning the recent loss of your loved one. May you find strength and comfort from the words of Psalms 46:1 which reads: "God is our refuge and strength, A help that is readily found in times of distress." Our loving God is there for us if we ask for his 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.
