Dear Family - You have my condolences for the loss of your mother.
I always enjoyed visiting with her. She was always so friendly.
Family of Myrna,
My sympathy to you for the loss of Myrna, she was a special lady.
My sincerest condolences to Arnburg family. Losing a loved one is one of the painful things in this world. It is comforting to know that God deeply cares about us and would soon act to eliminate death (1 Peter 5:7; Revelation 21:4). May you find comfort from these scriptures and by visiting jw.org.
