We wanted to share our condolences with Joan’s family. It is never easy to have to say goodbye to a loved one. The pain of loss can be unbearable. Our Creator promises us that one day this pain will be just a memory. That beautiful promise can be found at Revelation 21:3, 4. Our pain and suffering will be a thing of the past, and we can cry tears of joy as we welcome back the ones that we love so much. We hope you find comfort in those promises.

As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends. And also please find comfort in Jehovah's words at Isaiah 41:13. Sincerely Rebecca
