    Dear {Stanford & Davis Family}, I was terribly sorry to hear about the passing of {Betty}. While we know that all people are given to us by G-D for but a limited time, it is still difficult to accept the death of a loved one. While we loved {Betty} dearly, whatever G-D takes away or gives belongs to Him. Everything has a fixed term in this world, so we must be patient and content. I hope that you can find solace in the truth of faith in this difficult time. Know that my thoughts are with you. Peace be upon you, {Mark Overton)

    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). See and imagine yourself welcoming back to life your dear loved one? Find out more about this resurrection online at JW.ORG
