My condolences to Bertha's family. One scripture that has given me comfort during times like these is Psalms 147:3, 5 which states,"He heals the brokenhearted; He binds up their wounds...Our Lord is great and mighty in power; His understanding is beyond measure." God, like no one else, understands how you feel right now. He has the power and the desire to heal your broken heart. What a beautiful thought. As Psalm 55:22 tells us, "Throw your burden on Jehovah, And he will sustain you."

Bert and I were neighbors in Milledgeville and became friends when we moved to Savannah within a month of each other. Bert was always fun. I have fond memories of our strolls on the beach at Tybee!

My condolences to the Varner family. At Revelation 21:4 Jehovah promises to do away with death forever. We look forward to this beautiful hope that Jehovah God promises us in the near future. One day soon we will not have to face nor fear our enemy death anymore. May Jehovah be with your family during this difficult time. For more information and encouragement that has helped me through difficult times such as this is jw. org that offers hope and comfort for the future.

May the God of all comfort give your family the strength needed to cope with the loss of your loved one. This scripture at Isaiah 65:17 gives me comfort to know that Jehovah will soon do away with this painful enemy. For more information on this and other enlightening topics please visit jw.org.

Where do I begin? My heart aches today. Never again, will I be able to pickup the phone, and hear your voice, and your laughter. I will never again get those 2am calls, just to let me know, that maibelle was all out of food , and I needed to get some. Boy! I'm gonna miss those calls.I didn't just work for you, but I considered you a dear friend, and sometimes, you were like a mother to me. You know, the Bible tells us, that, to be absent from the body, is to be present with the Lord. So, I grieve a little less, knowing that you couldn't be in better, or more loving hands, then the Almighty God.I will not say goodbye. Rather, I will use one of your favorite phrases, that I would hear at the end of every conversation. Goodbye for now, my friend. Goodbye for now. Until we meet again, may you rest peacefully in our lord's bosoms. You will forever be in my heart. I love and miss you already. Suze,
