My sincere condolences go out to Ms. Rita’s family. In this time of unimaginable grief, It is heartening to know that our creator can give us comfort. “The father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort...comforts us in all our trials (2 Corinthians 1: 3,4). The bible assures us that God will help us in our time of need and bring relief to our troubled heart. The Bible also contains a profound hope for the future at Revelations 21: 3,4 where it says, “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”” This hope can bring some light in these dark and trying times. I invite you to visit JW.ORG for more information on this comforting hope.
