"My deepest sympathy go out to the family of Provita Elena Bourne.  I didn't know Provita personally, but wanted to extend my condolences to the family.  She was my sister in the faith.  I know how painful it is to lose a loved one in death.  It is so comforting to know that we have a heavenly father that knows what you are going through.  At Job 14:15, Job said you will call, and I will answer you, You long for the work of your hands.  So Jehovah want to bring your love one back to life as much as you want him to, and what is so good he is going to do it. Remember David, he placed his hope and trust in Jehovah.  That is why he requested Jehovah at Psalms 56:8 to put his tears as if in a skin bottle in order to remember them.  So throw you burdens on Jehovah, he will sustain you. Psalms 55:22.  Until then you can look forward to the resurrection hope, when you will be able to welcome Provita back again. My prayers are with you.  Again a fellow sister in the faith."
