Please accept my condolences for your loss. May the God of comfort give your family the strength to continue to cope with the sorrow and pain you're feeling right now. Our heavenly Father promises at Isaiah 25:8 that he's going to swallow up death forever and John 5:28, 29 says that we will get to see our dead loved ones again in a resurrection of life. I really hope these words bring a measure of comfort and peace to you and your family during this difficult time. JW.ORG

How does one even begin to say goodbye to someone that meant so much to so many? Mama, you were the rock of our family, our everything. Outside of GOD, no one kept our clan together like you did. Your enduring spirit, quiet strength and loving heart can never be replaced. Though we weep today, we know you would want us to go on living tomorrow … so that is what we will do. In doing so, we’ll carry every hug, every smile and every lesson you gave us along the journey with us. Mere words could in no way express all that you blessed our lives with. We are forever your children … all of us … and we’ll carry that distinction with pride for the remainder of our days. I love you dearly, Mama. Rest well, Queen! You’ve earned it.
