    Our deepest condolences to all the love ones of the dearly departed. The words found at 2 Corinthians chapter 1 verses 3 and 4 were especially comforting to our family during the loss of our parents and dear loved ones. It says, "Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with comfort that we receive from God." May these words strengthen you too.

    Dear Ashanti's Mom, I was just informed of her passing on yesterday. I just needed to let you know that she was the sweetest young lady. I worked in the same bldg. with her on W. Ponce and we use to walk in from the parking lot together and always greeted each other in love. My prayers to you and your entire family that God will give you everything you need to press through this time of grievance. Although I moved to Mid-town location, I'll miss her face and sweet demeanor. May God keep you and your family in His loving arms now and forever.

    To the Family and Friends of Ashanti Riles: I am sorry for your loss. I cannot imagine your pain and sadness at this time. May Jehovah God comfort and support you during this time of sorrow. God has promised to one day put an end to death forever (Isaiah 25:8). Jesus also showed what He will do in the future. The Bible shows that in the future those who have fallen asleep in death will be brought back to life on a paradise earth (John 5:28 and Luke 23:43). Until that time comes may you treasure the memories you shared.

    We are saddened to know you are grieving the recent loss of your loved one. May you find comfort in the words found in Psalms 34:18 which reads: “ Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit.” Our loving God cares about us and is ready to bring us comfort if we allow him (1John 5:14). He also has made the SURE promise of a resurrection RIGHT HERE ON EARTH when it is restored into a beautiful paradise (Acts 24:15 Isaiah 55;11).
