Although we dont know you personally, please accept our deepest sympathy for your recent loss of Vera Sis Mae. You may feel like what the Bible says at Psalms 119:28 - I weep with grief. My heart is heavy with sorrow. Encourage and cheer me with your words. First Corinthians 15:26 says death is our enemy, and it truly is. But there will be an end to death. We can be comforted by Jesus words in Revelation 21:3. If you would like to know more, please go to jw.org and What Hope Is There for the Dead? Prayerfully yours, John and Elaine
