    Dear Stone family. I am so sorry to have read of the death of Doris. Please accept my sincere condolences. I would like to share something that I have personally found to be comforting. It is found in the Bible at John 5:28, 29 and Revelation 21:4. May God give you and your family comfort in His promise that soon we will never experience losing our loved ones in death and we will be able to see them again once they are resurrected. With deepest sympathy and warmth of heart. Additional Bible based comfort can be found at Search:Comfort

    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.

    I was one of Claudia's best friends from childhood on, and it has always given me great joy to know what good care, love and happiness Doris brought to my dear friend's young life--and how much it meant to Claudia to be in touch with Doris in adulthood. Doris was indeed a special angel for Claudia. I miss Claudia every day, and continue to be grateful for the love Doris gave her--Claudia herself was a special soul and very loving person, and I know Doris brought bountiful, generous, loving care to Claudia's life! I will think of them as reunited on this anniversary of Claudia's passing, Sept. 26, 2011.
