    As I knew Sister Mildred, she was an inspirational christian lady with a sweet and kind spirit. In other words, although she possessed outward beauty, her inner beauty shone ever so brightly until one has been blessed just to have known her. May God comfort the grieving family and friends who will deeply miss this wonderful lady!

    We're so sorry you are mourning the loss of your dear loved one. Not much can soothe the pain this sorrow brings, but we hope the words of Psalms 34:18 can help some. It reads: “Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit.” We can rely on our loving God to provide comfort in these troublesome times. He also has made the sure promise of a resurrection RIGHT HERE ON EARTH when it is restored into a beautiful paradise! (Acts 24:15; Psalms 37:9-11, 29). This is Sure to come because everything God says, he does without fail (Isaiah 55:11). Find out more about this resurrection online at JW.ORG
