Condolence to the Family & Friends of Phyllis Craig,
As you cherish the many fond memories of Mrs. Craig, reflect on the time when sickness... and death... will be no more. (Revelation 21:3,4; 1Corinthians 15: 26) This is what our loving God Jehovah has promised and Jesus Christ himself guaranteed the hope of seeing our loved ones again by means of the resurrection. (John 5:28,29; Acts 24:15; Isaiah 26:19)
May God’s word bring you comfort during this difficult time and in the days ahead as we await the fulfillment of his promises.......
