    It was a privilege to be an ‘in-law’ through Khryste, but even more to be her sister in the truth. She will be missed but what a grand welcome we will give her when Jehovah calls and she answers.

    AD and Khrys and family, There are no correct words for an event such as this. We were not intended to have it to deal with. For the world it seems so permanent, but for true servants of Jehovah, we know even death cannot separate us from Jehovah’s love. Our loving sister will come back with a perfect body and health and will probably outdo those who survive. She has paid the ultimate price for imperfection and now she simply rests with Jehovah. We all look forward to her waking up. It will be soon. Love you guys so much.

    To the family of Ms. Dora Bairefield please accept my sincere condolence for the loss of our dear sister. The scripture at 2 Cor. 1:2,3 calls Jehovah the God of all comfort. May his love surround you at this time. I look forward to the fulfillment of John 5:28, 29 which tells us that a time is coming when those we have lost will hear Jesus’ voice and come back to life! That will be a wonderful day that we all must strive to do our best now to be there. She is another precious reason to remain faithful. Our loving father Jehovah has given us undeniable truths to make us strong. She will rest until we get to see her again. Know your spiritual family in Georgia will be praying for you to endure.

    So very sorry for the loss of your Mother….I truly believe parents are one of the greatest gifts Jehovah has given us….I know you will hold her in your hearts till you can hold her in your arms again……as we hope to do with our son……….??
    Our hope is the resurrection ,Jesus is the resurrection and yet he cried……we cry for our loss and our hope will sustained us….
    We know that Jehovah has promised a resurrection, but that does not prevent us from having the deep hurt and trauma of our sudden loss or that gnawing pain………………… And Will not end until we hold our beloved ones again. Jehovah can and does and will comfort us , Remember when Jehovah helps us, (2 Corinthians 1:3-5) who comforts us IN all our tribulation How comforting it is to realize that when we are enduring a trial, Jehovah sees what is happening and hears our outcries! He is certainly not indifferent to our suffering. .. The eyes of Jehovah are toward the righteous ones,And his ears are toward their cry for help . Psalm 34:15.. Take heart ♥ and remember Jehovah said: “For I, Jehovah your God, am grasping your right hand, the One saying to you, ‘Do not be afraid. I myself will help you.”-Isa. 41:13. Don’t let go of his hand……..
