Family and friends you have my deepest sympathy. This is a difficult time for most. There are basic things that can help anyone get through the pain no matter what age, gender or religious beliefs. Many have been helped with the twelve basics or just a few. You can go to and get the basics with no cost ever. See the article “Help for those who grieve “ in the magazine section. Anyone can get help and comfort.

I don’t even know where to start....
My heart is so broken. I can’t believe you’re gone. You and I were such amazing friends I spent so much time with you growing up. I’m thankful for the pictures and the memories I have of you! I love you and will miss you more than words could ever say. Save me a place up there.....I will see you again! All my love, Cin ❤️

John wrote in the Book of Revelation "And I heard a voice from heaven saying, “Write this: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.” “Blessed indeed,” says the Spirit, “that they may rest from their labors, for their deeds follow them!” (Chapter 14 verse 13). Brian, Kaila, Liam, and family: Denise, the boys, and I are so deeply sorry for your grief and sorrow. Heather is and will always be a blessed spirit who has worked hard and has earned the rest of her labor. She will be deeply missed and all of you have the love and support of your near and extended families. Rest easy 677, your work here is done. Your brothers and sisters have it from here.
Dewey, Denise, Dewey III, and Jordan

I am so sorry for your loss. Losing a loved one in death is such a difficult thing to experience. Please be comforted by the promises in the Bible. Jesus tells us at John 5:28, 29 that all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out. What a loving provision put in place by the God of all comfort so we can have the assured hope of seeing our dead loved ones live again one day. Meanwhile as I pray for that day to come I ask Jehovah God to bless your family and give each of you the strength to endure this most trying time. For more Bible promises, please visit
