    To the Miss Lila West Family, We have truly lost an educational icon, a woman who influenced so many lives as a teacher and community leader. Your family matron was well respected in her profession and she had a genuine passion to help educate our youth. She was loved by so many; her influence expands the globe through all of her life-long students.

    So sorry to hear about your loss. I am praying for strength beyond normal, to comfort you and your family. God does Not cause death right now. Time and unforeseen occurrences befall all. Ecclesiastes 9:11. Soon our heavenly father is sending his son , Jesus, to solve all mankinds problems, by means of his kingdom coming here on Earth. Matthew 6:10; Daniel 2:44 .The scripture", Our father who art in Heaven hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come thy will be done on Earth , as it is in Heaven." You see it is a government that Jesus will rule as King. It will bring no more pain, no more sorrow, no more tears, no more death. Revelation 21:3-5. The dead will live again, here on Earth. Acts 24:15; Psalms 37:11, 29; Isaiah 26:19. Make sure you look up all the scripture to see this is all true. There is more. If your interested please email : https://bit.ly/2PaZ4HQ It is all Free.

    We deeply feel for what you and the family are going through. At times, there isn't much that can soothe the pain this grief brings, but you may find some comfort in the words of Psalms 9:9 which reads: "Jehovah will become a secure refuge for the oppressed, A secure refuge in times of distress." Yes, our Loving God can help if we allow him to (1John 5:14). He also has made the SURE promise of a resurrection right here on earth, when it is restored to a Paradise (Acts 24:15; Psalms 37:9-11,29). No, not just a dream, but for a certainty he will do it, for Isaiah 55:11 shows us that everything he says, he accomplishes without fail. You can find out more online at JW.ORG.
