I just wanted to express my condolences and to share a few words that may help bring you and your family some comfort. When I have felt sad some bible texts that have helped me are Isaiah 57:15 especially the end of it where Jehovah God reminds us that he can “revive the spirit of the lowly” and “the heart of those being crushed” if we seek him in prayer and ask him for help. Another text, 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 also reminds us that Jehovah God is the “God of all comfort” so who better to seek for comfort since he created us and knows exactly what we are feeling and going through. I hope these bible texts help you and your loved ones how they have helped me in the past.
Also in times like these, we may ask ourselves questions such as, What happens when we die? Can the dead really live again? How can I deal with grief? You can find the answers to these questions and other biblical based information at www.JW.org.
Over the years, I have enjoyed our talks, your stories, and your overall company. What a remarkable and talented person who unfortunately left this earth unexpectedly. I will always remember the incredible baked goods you made, the candles in the attic, and the unique gifts you sold in your store. Your presence during the Christmas holiday will certainly be missed but I know you will be with us in spirit.
All my best to you in heaven - Denise
