Our condolences to you family on your recent loss. We hope the comfort God provides at John 5:28,29 will be a source of comfort where it shows God will bring about a resurrection. Revelation 21:1-4 show God will brig a new earth for us to live in and wonderful hopes for the future.
Hello, I want to say I’m very sorry for the loss of your loved one. However, I want to bring you hope and comfort by what the bible says will happen for everyone who passed away in death. Revelation 21:4 says how God “will wipe out every tear from our eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning or outcry or pain be anymore, the former things have passed away.” So one day, Jehovah God will do away with sickness, pain, old age, and death forever. Acts 24:15 also mentions that “there will be a resurrection of the righteous and unrighteous”. This means all who have died, like all my relatives and your relatives, will get a chance to live again, here on earth (Psalms 37:29). I do hope that I brought you some comfort. Jehovah’s witnesses in your local area can bring you more comfort from the bible, to help you cope with whatever tragedies you may be faced with.

Geneva Rhodes was a very special person. I enjoyed our visits together. She shared a lot of things about her life that was very interesting. It was a delight to talk with her about spiritual matters. May God bless this family.
Geneva & I shared a love for music at Shiloh, as did Mrs. Kate, her Mother. She always had such a warm personality & smile proving that she was happy. Even though she suffered a lot in the past few years she always loved her family & many friends. My life is better as the result of having a friend as dear as Geneva. Now she will reap her reward for living a long life as a Christian lady. Sending my love to the family at this time.
Marlene, we are so sorry for your loss. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. Pete & Debbie
