"All his [Jacob's] sons and daughters came to comfort him, but he refused to be comforted. 'No,' he said, 'in mourning will I go down to the grave to my son.' So his father wept for him."-GENESIS 37:35, The Holy Bible-New International Version.
THE patriarch Jacob grieved deeply over the loss of his son. He expected to grieve until the day he died. Like Jacob, you may feel that the pain of losing a loved one is so deep that it will never go away. Hopefully, you will find this online article entitled: "When a Loved One Dies How Can You Cope?" to be of help.
We are so happy to have had the opportunity to know Sister Beaton. Her pleasant smile, her accent and her presence will be missed. But we are also assured that as she had fought "..the fine fight of the faith" she has indeed "taken hold of everlasting life" (1Tim. 6:12) as she awaits to "stand up" (be "resurrected") in the promised new earth. (Revelation 21:3, 4) Please know that our prayers, thoughts and shoulders are with you and your family, especially now.
If ever we can be of any assistance to you, please do not hesitate to ask us.
Your Fellow Servants,
