"So very sorry to learn of the loss of your beloved Glatha. I hope that you will find comfort in Jehovah God's promise in the bible to resurrect those sleeping in death by means of his Son Christ Jesus (John 5:28, 29) He also promises that soon all the things that cause us so much pain; sickness, poor health, death, injustice...will be no more. (Rev. 21:3, 4)  In time may he bind up your broken hearts. For more information on the resurrection hope please visit JW.Org.

Again, sincere condolences to your family."

"So sorry for your loss Brenda, I wish I had known so I could've went to the service. Evelyn was a beautiful lady, I liked her from our first meeting when she worked at Tom's. I know the pain is great for you  but she is in no more pain with her Heavenly Father. If you need anything don't hesitate to ask, I will keep you all in my prayers."

This tribute was added by S Hill on 16th December 2015

"I'm sorry to hear of the loss of your loved one. Jehovah God promises that very soon death and all sorrow will be a thing of the past.

Revelation 21:3,4. "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. "

Also, he promises that there will be a resurrection. This real hope of seeing our dead loved ones live again is found at Acts 24:15.

I hope the promises of the Bible can bring you and your family comfort during this difficult time."
