    To the family of Mrs. Rachel Blackshear, I am very sorry to hear that your loved one has passed. I met Sister, Blackshear back in the early 70's, at the Kingdom Hall on Cotton Ave. in Albany, Ga. Her family would come down to visit our congregation. It was a joy to have them at our meetings. You have my deepest sympathy and condolences. May you find comfort and peace from God's word the Bible, it contains information that can help us in our times of pain and sorrow. For example, at John 5:28,29, it says that there will be a resurrection of our dear loved ones and we will be able to see them again alive right here on this earth, and they will be in good health in both body and in mind. Also at Revelation 21:3,4, it says that there will be no more death or pain on this earth in the near future. This is good news from God, it gives us hope for the future and helps us to endure the pain and sorrow we feel now. May you continue to find comfort from God's word. You will always be in our prayers.
