I am so sorry for your loss, it can be difficult to lose someone close to you. I wanted to share a hope with you for the future from the Bible. It is at Revelation 21:4, which gives us reassurance that God will one day take away sickness, disease-caused pain and tears of sorrow. We will all one day live in peace forever. If you would like to learn more or have any questions, please go to the official website JW.ORG.

My dear Karen, Diane, Barbara, Linda, Alissa and David.

I am so sorry of the passing of "Aunt Rose...she sure was a very special lady. Her hair was always just perfect and even at 90 she dressed better then me. I will always remember her lovely sense of humor over all of the years. I just loved her. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Love, Elaine Marie Hyson
