Lorraine and family, I am so very sorry to hear about your Mom. I remember her as a truly gracious and kind woman, always willing to help with Luther League and other church activities when we were teens. I hope she knew what a wonderful model she was for many of us. Please accept my deepest sympathy.

Alice Quante Libet, Charleston, SC

Donna has so many cherished memories of spending summers with Aunt Gerri as a child, she was a truly loving and kind Aunt. She certainly will be missed by her entire family, yet it's so comforting to know that she is now with her Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ!

Donna & Graham Fossey, Dallas, Texas

Dear Harold and Jack, I am so sorry to hear about your mother's passing. I will keep both of your families in my prayers. It's Saturday night and I just saw the email from the church. I would have come to the service if I had known. Take comfort in knowing your mother is now at peace and enjoying God's company in heaven with my parents. I wish you peace. Sincerely, Bubba Boyette

I'm sorry for your loss. 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.
