Linda To the Family. Losing a love one in death is a trying time for all. I just want to give the family some comfort and hope from God's word, which gives the assurance that one day we will see our dear love ones again. ACTS 24:15 And I have a hope toward God, which hope these(men) themselves also entertain, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteuos and the unrighteous. Certainly while we await for these wonderful promise, I hope the family truly find comfort knowing this wonderful hope from Gods word. You can find more comfort from Gods word @ www.JW.org

Inethia Scott My thoughts and prayers go out to the Jefferson family during the passing of their brother Calvin. May you find comfort in knowing that god will be your refuge and strength just when you need him most. He sees (your tears),knows (your heart is heavy) and understands (the passing of a love one is difficult),but he promised to love you through this and so much more. Trust him and let the peace that passeth all understanding guide your heart in mind today and always!

Dell My condolences to the family: When someone dies many say, "I want to see them again." The Bible tells us this is possible please read, John 5:28-29. This will happen in the near future. Please read Revelation 21: 3-4 and notice this fact death will be no more. May this be of comfort to you and your family at this time and in the future.

Mrs. Jordan To The Family, I want to express mu deepest sympathy for your loss. I also want to share the comfort of John 5:28,29 where we are promised that those who have fallen asleep in death have the hope of receiving a "resurrection" back to life. Life on an earth restored to a beautiful paradise. Psalms 37:11 says, "The meek will possess the earth, and they will find exquisite delight in the abundance of peace." While we await that wonderful time please find comfort in these promises.
