I was very sorry today to learn of Mrs. Sarah's Passing. She was a wonderful person and very much a part of our "family on the point". Mrs. Jenkins was always interested in what us kids were "up to today". She and Mr. Marvin would eagerly help fix our bikes, knees, feelings and any thing else we needed taken care of without judgment or complaint. I just had a wonderful conversation with Mrs. Sarah last month (she recognized me in the CVS parking lot in Sand Fly). She was still happily conversing about returning to Bonabella Point one day. I am so glad to have that conversation as a lasting memory of her wit, charm and smile. I will miss her greatly. Vernon

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

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.

Since death wasn't originally God's purpose for mankind,it is very painful to deal with,but please read the wonderful hope that The Bible holds out for us all at Revelation 21;3,4.

D. Miller, Dacula, 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.
