Dear Richard, Rita, and Leah,
Linda and I were so pained to hear of your terrible loss. We find comfort in knowing that it will be a short rest and then her wonderful, vital, loving, life will be restored to make the earth a much more beautiful paradise. We wait with you in confidence knowing Jehovah also yearns to bring all His faithful servants back to life, never to be parted again. We love you and pray Jehovah's comfort will help you endure this temporary loss and focus on the near future when no resident will say:"I am sick."

This is a very sad day for your family and the Brothers and Sisters. As the Bible shows us when one part is hurting the whole body hurts. May Jehovah provide the strength and comfort you need during this time. Richard and Toni Shaffer of the Galloway, Oh Congregation in Columbus.
