I am sorry for your loss. Death is always a painful event for us all. However Jehovah offers us comfort in the Bible at Isaiah 25:8. I always find this scripture to be of encouragement. Jehovah promises to do away with death and all things that bring us pain. How satisfying that will be. May joyful memories fill your minds and hearts through this difficult time.

Roosevelt G., Savannah, Ga

Our deepest condolences.May you be comforted by the words found at Psalm 34:18; Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted;He saves those who are crushed in spirit. May this scripture help you and your dear loved ones cope with grief and sadness now and in the days to come.

I'm sorry for your loss. Death is a painful ordeal. The scripture at Revelation 21:4 gives hope. There, Jehovah God, promises to do away with sickness and death very soon. This scripture has helped me in the past when dealing with loss. I hope it helps you too. For more information, please visit jw.org.

My condolences to the family. At Revelation 21:4 Jehovah promises to do away with death forever. One day soon we will not have to face nor fear our enemy death anymore. The website jw. org has really helped me through the difficulty of loosing a loved one. May your family find comfort in it as well.

Niecy, Savannah, GA

My sincerest condolences go out to your family, it's never easy losing someone in death. May you take comfort in God's promise found at Revelation 21:4, which says "he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” This verse brought me peace when I experienced loss, I hope it can do the same for you. May the memories you have give you strength during this difficult time.

Betty Goodwin Klingel, 80, passed away Friday, August 18, 2017 at Georgetown University Hospital in Washington, DC.

Betty was a native of Savannah, Georgia, growing up in the community of Montgomery.  She attended Savannah High School, and served as the President of the Savannah Chapter of the National Secretaries Association before relocating to the Northern Virginia/Washington, D.C. area to start a family.  She cherished her role as a mother, and relished every opportunity to share that same nurturing love with her neighborhood children as well.  She enjoyed sports of all types as a participant, coach, team mom, and fan throughout her life.  Her strength, determination, and loving, caring spirit were an inspiration to all who knew her.  She was preceded in death by her husband Albert John Klingel Jr. (“Jack”); parents, Benjamin Styles Goodwin, Sr. and Margaret Hutson Goodwin; brothers, Jimmy Goodwin, John Goodwin, Ben Goodwin, and Tommy Goodwin; and sisters, Barbara Goodwin (“Punk”), and Pamela Shepard (“Ludy”).

She is survived by her two sons, Christopher Jaixen Klingel of Saratoga Springs, Utah, and Eric Hutson Klingel of Centreville, Virginia.

The family will receive friends from 5 to 7pm on Saturday, August 26 at Pierce Funeral Home in Manassas, Virginia, and from 12 to 1 pm August 29 at Fox and Weeks (Hodgson) in Savannah, Georgia.  Funeral services will be held at 1 pm on August 29 with Interment at Forest Lawn Memory Gardens.
