    Dear friend
    I’m so sorry to read of the loss of your loved one. During this difficult time please take note of the promise Jehovah has left for our comfort at Isaiah 25:8. There Jehovah makes a wonderful promise that he will swallow up death and wipe the tears from our eyes; such a loving promise is it not? Please allow those words to bring you comfort during such a difficult time.

    What a might god we serve. I was blessed to have been in Deborah’s life. She was an amazing, loving, intelligent, individual who loved her family dearly. Although, biologically she was my aunt she was more of a mother. It was a honor and a blessing to have been in her presence. If she there is a such thing called Angels on earth then Deborah was indeed just that. When speaking about a woman of faith that would indeed be her. We may miss her here on earth but I know in my father’s house there are many mansions.
