Mom, I'm so proud to be your daughter. You taught me so much about the person I want to be. I don't know how I'm going to go on without my touch tone. I miss you so much already and love you so very much. I know I'll see you again and until them your always in my thoughts and prayers

Julie Chandler, Charleston, SC

I am sorry for your loss. Death is painful to all of us. However God's word the Bible always offers encouragement. A scripture I find comforting is Isaiah 25:8. There Jehovah promises to do away with death and all things that bring us pain. That will be very satisfying! I hope this thought has been comforting to you. May positive thoughts fill you hearts and minds as you endure this difficult time.

R.G., Savannah, Ga

My condolences to the family. May you find comfort in the scripture at Revelation 21:4 and the website jw. org.

Niecy, Savannah, GA

Our sincerest condolences. May you be comforted by the words found at Psalms 34:18;Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted;He saves those wo are crushed in spirit.It is my hope that this scripture helps you and your dear loved ones cope with grief and sadness now and in the days to come.

Givens, Pooler, Ga

My heart and prayers go out with my Aunt Marylou, she was always there when family called, my mother's little sister. She was a wonderful lady. My mom always said when there's no one left here to remember you, we will all be back together again. The family is rejoining now. Love them all, they were nothing but good to me.Love You All.

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.
