Please accept my deepest sympathies for the loss of dear Marla. During this difficult time comfort and hope can be found through Gods Word the Bible. Revelation 21:3,4 and John 5:28,29 promise that soon death will be no more and our loved ones who have passed will come back to life. Not in the sickened state they were in but in perfect form. How we cant wait for these promises to come true. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you. For more comfort from the scriptures please visit JW.org. Sincerely
