Linda was a lovely, kind, talented women. She knew how to be a loving friend and I feel blessed to had her in my life for many years. My heartfelt sympathy to all who loved her and miss her.

, ,

May God provide what the friends and family of Mrs. Sickler need during this difficult time, and may they find comfort in the Bible's promises that soon, "all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out" (John 5:28, 29), and that "[God] will wipe out every tear from [our] eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore." (Revelation 21:3, 4). In fact, God 'will swallow up death forever, and He will wipe away the tears from all faces...for He himself has spoken it.' (Isaiah 25:8) We can also rest assured that, "the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our trials" will help us endure until he brings about these promises. (2 Corinthians 1:3, 4)

My hugs, love and prayers go out to all of you. Unfortunately, I never met Linda in person. However, I had so much fun watching the witty banter between her and Tobi on social media. They would both always bring a smile to my face just as I expect Tobi will continue to do for years to come. All of our Love, Malee and Preston Horn

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.
