To the family of Jo Nell Latham:
Please except my deepest condolences on the loss of your loved one. It is never a easy thing when we lose someone we love unexpectedly. Times like this can be very taxing on all family and friends. Everyone wants to say or do something that would ease the pain but this is something that doesn't fade away quickly.

I wanted to leave you some words of comfort. Words that show an invitation and promise. It has helped me and others in the time of need. One of the first things I ask all of you is to be there for one another and give each other strength. Family support should be welcomed because each individual has special gifts that can upbuild. Second is to pray. This is a invitation from our creator who knows what you are going through. King David strongly suggested this when he was going through trials. He says at Psalms 55:22, "Throw your burden on Jehovah, and he will sustain you....." So pray often, pray when you're down. Pray for strength, pray for courage. Don't be afraid to pray.

Along with prayer you must have hope. The Bible gives a promise that there is hope for our future and the ones that have passed on in death. The conditions will be entirely different for all to enjoy. That process is called peace. Psalms 37:11 says, "But the meek ones will possess the earth, and they will find their exquisite delight in the abundance of peace."
We should all have the hope for that promise. Then, this is a word we will never have to utter ever again.....Death. So here is another promise the bible makes found in Revelation 21:4."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 promise is coming very soon.

In the meantime, I pray that you all can recover from this and may you draw close to God. Always remember Jo Nell and reflect on all the wonderful things she did with you in her life. God be with you.
