I'm so sorry for your loss. Death is not something that was intended to be experienced by humans. The bible holds out a beautiful promise of a ressurection at John 5:28,29. We can see our loved ones again very soon. I hope this scripture brings you some comfort as it has done for me in the past when I experienced loss. Please visit jw.org for more comforting information on this subject and so much more.

To my Niece and Nephew’s and their spouses. I truly feel that the passing of your Mother, at this time of her life, is a blessing. She has mourned the loss of your dear father ever since he passed in 2013. But I also realize that it is very difficult to know that you no longer have your mother with you any more. I know by the life Barb led that she is now with God in her everlasting reward and reunited with Earl and her loved ones who have gone before her. She is free from all her earthly difficulties and peace is all she knows now. You have all been very loving to her and made sure she was cared for to the end of her life. Laura, have peace in this, that you and your brothers carried out your fathers wish for her not to be away from her home. You found good care givers, especially Bertha who not only cared for her, but loved her too. ?? Love you all so very much! Aunt Carolyn ??
