I would like to express my deepest sympathy for the loss of your loved one. May Jehovah, the God of all comfort, help your family during this difficult time. 2 Corinthians 1: 3-4 "Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the 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 the comfort that we receive from God."

Dear Smith family, I am sorry for your pain, and loss. I would like to share with you something that has given many comfort at a time like this. You can find real comfort in what God has promised, such as in John 5:28,29 -He promises that he is going to resurrect all those who have ever died, back to life again here on earth. And all the things that cause us sorrow, pain, and even death, will be gone forever. You can read about this in Revelation 21:3,4, and 1 Corinthians 15:26.

What a blessing to have Ann in our family! She was a joy and loved to laugh. And I'm sure my brother kept her in stitches a lot . So happy that Ann and Billy Gene were able to travel together even though they both had unfortunate health issues to keep them from continuing for long. And I know that Ann and Billy Gene loved each other very much. She didn't want to be alone and he stepped in to make sure she was not. Ann and I had a great conversation about the Lord, and she told me she was saved! So we know exactly where she is and she can finally breathe without struggle. Praise the Lord!! Will lift up in prayer all the ones that love her. I trust that you can be comforted with the fact she is in heaven now. God bless! Love, JC and Judy Porterfield
