Linda My deepest Sympathy goes out to the family, losing a love one in death is a very trying time. Please find comfort in knowing what the bible says about the opportunity of seeing our dear love ones again @ Act 24:15 under the very best conditions @ Revelation 21:3 & 4. Please visit JW.ORG for more encouragement and hope from GOD’S word during this difficult time.
