Offering my condolence to the family and friends of Phyllis Weeks. As you cherish the many fond memories of Mrs. Weeks, reflect on the time when aging..., sickness... & death... will be conditions of the past! (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 provide you the comfort to endure at this time & in the days to come, as we await the fulfillment of his promises!
