I'm so sorry for your loss. Death was not intended to be apart of life. Jehovah, God, makes a comforting promise at John 5:28,29 to resurrect our loved ones one day. I hope this scripture gives you comfort as it has given me in times of loss. For more information, please visit jw.org.

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

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.

I am so very sorry Debra for your loss. We went all thru school together, so I hope you remember me. I felt the need to convey how sorry I am. I lost my mother four years ago and I think it is the hardest thing in my life. It looks like you have lots of family to lean on. Please do. My prayers are with you.

Debra Jones, Springfield, MO

Thinking of you all. There are so many wonderful memories growing up with the Brewton Family. Mrs. Brewton was so supportive of each us in the Epworth Youth Group - always boosting our confidence. She was always so fun to be with. Wish I could be there in Savannah with you. Again, know I am thinking of you all and am there in spirit. Love Always.
