    David, Dion, Metri, my dear cousins, I had just talked to Sweet when Fred died because David called her so that we could converse. She sounded so happy to hear my voice as I hers. We have nothing left but cousins now & one uncle, and that's Uncle Bobby, in Covington, GA. Know that my prayers are with you and your family during your hours of bereavement. May the peace of God be with you always. Take care, be safe be blessed. Much love to you always.

    My sincere condolences go to the family at this trying time. There is a Bible passage that comforts me greatly. Jesus promised he will resurrect our loved ones at John 5: 28,29. This will happen when the earth becomes a place of peace as stated at Matthew 5:5. We will live the promise of everlasting life. (Psalm 37:29.) The conditions will be different because of another promise at Revelation 21:3,4 of no more death and pain. There is more comfort in God's Word, the Bible concerning the resurrection and reuniting with our dead loved ones. May you put complete trust in those promises. Isaiah 26:4.

    We're sorry to hear about your recent loss. Accept our sincere condolences. May you find strength from the words of Philippians 4:13 which says: "For all things I have the strength through the one who gives me power." What a loving God who cares about each one of us. He didn't intend for us to grow old and die. He thus has made the SURE promise of a resurrection right here on earth when it is restored to a beautiful paradise (Psalms 37:9-11, 29; Acts 24:15; Isaiah 55;11). Can you see yourself welcoming back to life your loved ones? What a joy it will bring all of us. You can go online to JW.ORG and find out more about this resurrection.
