My sincere condolences to the family an friends of Mrs. Hann. Death is never easy to cope with, but fortunately we have God's word the Bible. At 1 Corinthians chapter 15 verse 26 it talks about what will soon happen to death. That will be a joyous time to live on the earth when death is gone.

In Ecclesiastes 3:11 we read that God created us with the desire to live forever. He has opened the way for that desire to be fulfilled by means of his kingdom (government), that is soon to come under the rule of Jesús Christ. (Matthew 6:9&10) The question now is: Why do we grow old, get sick and die? Please visit www.jw.org for the consoling answer to that question. What a touching obituary. My condolences to your family.

So very sorry for your loss. Please find some comfort in the scripture at Psalm 46:1 “God is a refuge and strength, and is readily found in times of distress”. Continue to put your trust in the God of all Comfort.
