    I'm so sorry for your loss. I've known Mrs.Flora for many years. I first met her when she moved on Cedrow with her husband Mr. Frank, her grandchildren Sonya and Tonya. I saw her and babies outside and I went over to meet her and to play with the babies. From that day on I was at her home often for a meal, advice, or to hang out. She was a beautiful person inside and out, and always very kinid. She will be missed. I pray that the family find peace and comfort in knowing God cares for you and will help you in your time of need. Jeremiah 29:12 states "you will call me and come and pray to me and I will listen to you." Rhonda

    While words fail to capture the pain of losing a loved one, we look forward to the time when words will fail to capture the joy of having our heavenly Father return your dear one to you. The fact is that God has resurrected humans in the past. The Bible reports of eight instances of humans-young, old, male, and female-who were brought back to life on earth. Some had been dead for a short while, but one had been in a tomb for four days!-John 11:39-44. www.jw.org provides all the details about these resurrections as well as valuable information that can draw us close to our Father Jehovah God.

    2 Corinthians 1:3,4 gives us the assurance that "the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies" is "the God of all comfort" and he "comforts us in all our trials." James 5:11; God "is very tender in affection ["very compassionate"] and merciful." Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! (Psalm 36:7; 1 Peter 5:7)
