So sorry to hear of the passing of your Mom. What a wonderful hope Jehovah has given us in the resurrection, where we will see our love ones who have passed away again. All praise goes to Jah.

Heart was pained and very sadden when I heard the news of your mothers death. I am so greatful that over 40 yrs ago she sparked my interest for the very 1st time in getting to know our God Jehovah. From that pleasant conversation @ the work place I found the True God & a very loving and dear friend! We look forward to welcoming her back soon in Jehovah's paradise earth. Carol & Rennard Carmichael, Family
