"Dear Bennett Family,
Death is such a crushing blow. The pain is almost unbearable. Our loving Father and Creator Jehovah God never intended for his earthly family to experience it. But "through one man( Adam), sin entered into the world and death through sin". It is a by product of our imperfect body but it will not always be this way. Jehovah promises he "will swallow up death forever (Isa 25:8). There will be a resurrection (John 5;28, 29) For more information on the resurrection please visit JW.ORG where you will be directed to your bible for more comforting scriptures. may you find comfort from God's word and prayer in the difficult days ahead."

"Amanda and family- I am so sorry to hear about the pasing of your father. Wish I could be with you but since I can't please know that you and each of your family members are in my thoughts and prayers. When something like this happen so unexpectedly we have questions of WHY. We don't have the answer only God knows our appointed time. I would like to share a poem with you that I have ponderd in my heart after my love ones have passed on:
Remember him when flowers bloom early in the spring; Remember him on sunny days in the fun that summer brings. Remember him in the fall as you walk through leaves of gold; and in the wintertime-remember him in the stories that are told. But..most of all remember each day right from the start; He will be forever near for He will live within your heart. God Bless you.

Love in Christ, Hilda Williams"
