Offering my condolence to the family and friends of Mrs. Suthers. As you cherish the many fond memories, 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 & the prayers of others provide you the comfort to endure each day to come, as we await the fulfillment of his promises!
